Question:

Why do I see a D-dependency on an event when looking at the "Schedule Event Display" screen?

Answer:

You will see a D-dependency on an event when looking at the "Schedule Event Display' screen due coding in the SCL. The D-dependency is indicating a data set required dependency.

The following is a SCL that has two events coded. TESTJOBA will have 1 in column 71-"Data Set Count". TESTJOBB will have a D in column 20-24,"Execution Dependency".

Loading the following SCL:

*JOBNAME TIME DATE DEPS  RELEASE1RELEASE2RELEASE4 PROCESSP  OPDCCDELOCVV
TESTJOBA ASAP *                                   DAILY       10000
TESTJOBB ASAP *    D                              DAILY        0000

You will see the following:
