TAA Tools


 The Delay Hold  Spooled File command  submits a batch job  to QSYSNOMAX
 to run  HLDSPLF after a  delay time of  a specified number  of seconds.
 This  allows  a  processing  program  to  perform  functions  while the
 spooled file is the READY status.

 The spooled file must be in the READY status.

 A typical command would be:

              DLYHLDSPLF    SPLF(xxx) DLY(20)

 The named spooled file  in the current job  would be held by the  batch
 job after a wait of 20 seconds.

 If the  spooled file  is not in  the ready status  when the  command is
 run,  the  TAA9891 escape  message is  sent.   If  the spooled  file is
 non-existent or not in the ready  status when the time delay ends,  the
 batch job will fail.

 DLYHLDSPLF escape messages you can monitor for

       TAA9891    The spooled file is not in the ready status
       TAA9892    Multiple jobs exist for the requested job
       TAA9895    The job could not be found
       CPF3C40    The spooled file does not exist

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