Summary: 

While invoking the CA JCLCheck Workload Automation command !JCK or EJCK in ISPF edit, the message EDCHKDD DD STATEMENT MISSING is displayed.   You will also receive the message CAY6121W UNABLE TO OPEN OPTIONS STATEMENT FILE EDCHKDD  OPTIONS IGNORE.  The EDCHKDD control data set contains runtime options and are used by command !JCK and EJCK.

 

Instructions: 

When using the EDCHEK functions (!JCK or EJCK), you will need to allocate the EDCHKDD DD data set to your TSO logon procedure or logon CLIST. The data set allocated by the EDCHKDD DD statement contains CA JCLCheck WA runtime options.

For example:
//EDCHKDD DD DSN=CAI.CAIOPTN(CAZ1SEDA),DISP=SHR

There are several examples in data set CAI.CAIOPTN(CAZ1SEDx). The most commonly used member is CAZ1SEDA which contains the Autoproc option:

EDCHEK TSOE   -                                                       00010000
         AU                                                           00020000

Additionally, you can add options to override your default options. In the follow example, option NOLIST will prevent the wrap around output.

EDCHEK TSOE NOLIST NOSXREF -                                          00010000
         AU                                                           00020000

If you are not using Autoproc (NOAU), then CAIOPTN(CAZ1SEDP) can be used and the procedure libraries must be manually allocated as follows:

EDCHEK  PROC(PROC00)                                                  00010000
ALLOC FI(PROC00) DA(SYS1.PROCLIB)                                     00020000
ALLOC FI(*)      DA(SYS2.PROCLIB)                                     00030000
ALLOC FI(*)      DA(USER.PROCLIB)                                     00040000
ALLOC FI(PROC01) DA(USER2.PROCLIB)                                    00050000
GO                                                                    00060000
