How to share the Data area for twojob, I have a COBOL program which submit the Purge job for one table, that table has so many records. So in turn, it submits so many jobs for purge the same table but the job which submit first lock the data area, so the next jobs has been ended with error. Now I want to submit multiple jobs for purging due to rec count in that table is large. Also I have one question: If we submit multiple job is there may be a chance for record lock? Can anyone help me in this? Thanks in advance.
