Conditionally send an email based in RC

hello guys,

in my previous posting I was able to force a RC=4 based on a condition.

now I would like to send an email if RC > 0 in the same step. Is it possible?

I am just trying to save an extra step to send the email.

I didn't find anything in the manual. If possible can someone point me in the right direction?

Much appreciated

  • Miguel,

    Yes, you can conditionally execute a batch TSO step (EXEC PGM=IKJEFT1B) and use a %XMITIP command in it. Works beautifully!


    • thanks for the response Igor.

      I couldn't make it work in the same step, so I am sending the email with a second step added.

      It would be nice if you can share how you did it


    • Miguel - sure, it should be a separate step! Did you want to send an email as part of your Syncsort step?

      Glad you were able to do it!

    • Here is my code. I am sending an attachment to a group of people, there is nothing in the body of the email:

      // IF (STEP1.RC NE 0) THEN                                      


      //*    SEND EMAIL                                                


      //TSOA EXEC PGM=IKJEFT1B                                           

      //SYSEXEC  DD DISP=SHR,DSN='TSODTSOL.P000XMIP.EXEC'                

      //SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                              

      //SYSTSPRT DD SYSOUT=*                                             

      //SYSTSIN  DD *                                                    


      MSGDS 'ATTACHED.DATASET' -                                        

      SUBJECT 'EMAIL SUBJECT                 ' -                    

      FROM FROMADDRESS@GMAIL.COM                       


      // ENDIF
