Region parameter coded in jobcard overrides that at step
level in JCL. so the region parameter coded in jobcard is
considered at each step.
0k or 0M always allows/sets limit to all of the 24-bit/31-
bit virtual storage available to the address space

As others suggested,
region in the JOB card overrides the region in the Step
only when the Region in step card is gretaer than the
Region in JOB card.
1. Entire job takes - 4k
2. Step 1 takes - 0K ( few environments have settings, with
0K as unlimited space, in this case 4k is assigned to step
3. Step 2 region is overrides by job card region value - 4k

As we all know, job always overrides step.
then step 1 will take 0 bytes...but if 0 bytes is not sufficient in execution of that step then it goes to job 4k...
it prefers 0 but if not sufficient then 4k
Same case with step 2.
first checks 16k if it is ok for execution then fine else gives an error as 4k is anyhw not sufficient.

I have 20 steps in a job... step01, 02....step17...step20. For some reason I want to execute step17 only if the return code for all the previous steps are less than or equal to 4. otherwise if return code for any of the previous 16 steps is greater than 4, then step17 should be bypassed. How do I do that ?? how and in which step should i formulate COND parameter
