1.How to check for the errors using TYPRUN=SCAN?What will be the output if we give TYPRUN=SCAN?..

Answer / cj

Necron answered it right. TYPRUN=SCAN does the following:
1. Checks for syntax errors in the JCL
2. If errors present, the job listing gives the line number
and a short description of the error (so you can fix them
before submission).
3. If errors are not present, the job listing does
mention "No syntax errors".

In both cases 2 and 3, the point that should be remembered
is "The job is not run or initiated by the Operating
System". TYPRUN=SCAN only tells you if syntax errors are
present in the JCL or not. It does not invoke the job. Once
there are no syntax errors, remove TYPRUN=SCAN (or comment
it) and then submit the JCL for actual execution.

1.How to check for the errors using TYPRUN=SCAN?What will be the output if we give TYPRUN=SCAN?..

Answer / vtp

again the exact siginificance of TYPRUN = SCAN is yet to be
identified.

If you submit a job with(syntax error) by giving TYPRUN
=SCAN and without giving the same, the error message which
we are getting the same.

In both cases spool contains the message "EXPECTED
CONTINUATION NOT RECEIVED"

So anyone please tell the exact significance of this
command?

Answer / leena_kulkarni

TYPRUN=SCAN checks the JCL only through the converter, not
the interpreter. The difference is that the converter
basically checks all expressions to the LEFT of an equal
sign plus SOME expressions to the right of an equal sign
(and issues messages that start with IEFC), while the
interpreter checks all expressions to the RIGHT of an equal
sign (and issues messages that start with IEF). For
example, a data set name containing a qualifier that
exceeds eight characters,

1.How to check for the errors using TYPRUN=SCAN?What will be the output if we give TYPRUN=SCAN?..

Answer / prakash

Hi Sandhya, Its a kind of dry run where all the steps will
be performed but it won't be executed. Meansa data base
will not be updated, or dataset will not be catalogued. As
the name suggests its just a scan and checks the skeleton
of the jcl whether it is going to give error or not.
You need to submt the jcl in the same manner as u submit
all the jcls (by SUB) but this type it will only scan.
Thanks

1.How to check for the errors using TYPRUN=SCAN?What will be the output if we give TYPRUN=SCAN?..

Answer / azaadpakistani

&#61553; Enter !JCK on the Command Line

&#61553; Press Enter
If no Errors are detected:

&#61553; The System will return a message (on the “MSG”
lines). This message will contain the words “No
Statements” and “Severity was 0”.

If an Error is detected:
&#61553; You will see a summary message at the top of
screen. This message contains information regarding the
total number of potential errors sources. Example: “5
Statements”

&#61553; You will also see messages throughout the job. The
system flags location that may be a source of the error.

1.How to check for the errors using TYPRUN=SCAN?What will be the output if we give TYPRUN=SCAN?..

Answer / necron

Basically we use TYPRUN = SCAN to check the syntax errors
in the JCL.

Ex of syntax error: You have given a continuation (,comma)
at the end of a line and there was no continuation in the
next line.

In the Spool you will have the line no and a message about
the problem that occurred on a particular line in the jcl.
In the above said example it will be

line no: x Expected continuation not received.

Hope this clears your doubt.

1.How to check for the errors using TYPRUN=SCAN?What will be the output if we give TYPRUN=SCAN?..

Answer / mohamed khan

eg., I have a two steps in a Job -
Step 1 runs a program and Step 2 creates an outout file.
Now assume the output file(xxx.xxx)is already present.
If I give TYPRUN=SCAN, this will result in error , file
xxx.xxx already cataloged.

By doing this I save my time since I am alerted about the
file being cataloged before the program in step 1 was run.
(Though I will get the same error when i submit the job as
well)
