In ESP, there are three ways to handle continuation of the RELEASE statement. In the first, the customer can use (-+) at the end of the line and continue to the next line. The second way, is to code a RELEASE statement on the 1st line and RELEASE ADD on all lines that follow. The third is code a RELEASE statement and enclose the jobs to be released in parentheses.

  • Example #1
    Job JOBA   Release (JOBB)   Release Add (JOBC)   Release Add (JOBD)          ...ENDJOB
  • Example #2
    Job JOBA   Release (JOBB -      JOBC -      JOBD)          ...ENDJOB
  • Example #3
    JOB JOBA   Release (JOBB,JOBC,JOBD)          ...ENDJOB
