 CMPJOBQA        COMPARE JOB QUEUE ATTRIBUTES           TAAJOCQ

 The Compare Job  Queue Attributes command compares the  CRTJOBQ command
 parameters  of two Job  Queue objects.   A  spooled file is  created of
 any differences.

 The major attributes which are not compared are:

       - Owner
       - Authorizations to the job queue
       - Text description
       - Create date and time

 A typical command would be:

              CMPJOBQA  FROMJOBQ(xxx) TOJOBQ(yyy)

 A spooled file would be created with any differences shown.

 An  option exists to send  an escape message if  differences exist.  An
 option exists to delete the spooled file if no differences exist.

 CMPJOBQA  escape messages you can monitor for
 ---------------------------------------------

       TAA9895    Differences exist (optional based on ESCAPE parm)

 Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.

                  exist.   The default is  *NO which means  a completion
                  message is sent.
