Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

An interactive job is run interactively on your session window. A batch job is a submitted job.

On the spoolfile, if the job name is wrkstn Id its interactive job else its batch (job name)

    The first message in a job log is 'Job (job name) started on (date) at (time) in subsystem (subsystem name). If (subsystem) name is QINTER it was an interactive job, if QBATCH it was a batch job. There are always exceptions, but if you have not made any changes to subsystems descriptions, job descriptions, etc., the above should hold true. Leo Burkett

    Hi..please use this command Use WRKACTJOB. There is "Type" field. If under Type any job is showing "INT" = Interactive, 'BCH" = Batch, "SBS" = Subsystem, "SYS" = System, "WTR" = Writer (Printer). Batch job will run in QBATCH Subsystem/Job and Interactive job will run in QINTER Subsystem/Job.

    Batch jobs can be submitted to any subsystem. This can be done via the job description or simply by the submit job request. We have delevopers who occasionally submit batch job to process in QINTER by mistake. It's actually pretty simple for this ot occur.
