Hi All. So I've learned my first bit of code I'm trying to implement. Basically I *was* trying to insert this line of code into a .dat file so that every time our system wrote to a log file, I would fire off an email. I was told by my boss that because the file was 'jobbed' (??) out that my code would never be called.

Here's the code. If someone could explain more what he meant (and possibly offer me a workaround) I would bestow many blessings upon your crown :D :

s JH=$ZC(%SPAWN,"mail/subject="_$c(34)_"test"_$c(34)_" NL: "_$c(34)_"jerrold.horgan@xxx.com"_$c(34))

Thanks in advance

Hi,
The problem is that a JOBbed process does not have access to DCL and hence SPAWN just doesn't work. Instead of JOBbing the process start it with a SPAWN; something like %=$ZC(%SPAWN,"DSM dsmcommands").

Ok, thanks! I'll start looking into that.
