Hi mvrK,

Take “7″ against that job which is in MSGW & check the log why it has gone to MSGW. 
e.g. Might be an decimal data error(moving a char-value into a numeric-field) would have caused the job to got to MSGW.
Clear/Correct it, so that it becomes active again, so that the 2nd job gets invoked.
Thanks

    You need to find what message the job is waiting on and respond to the message. Usually the easiest way is to use option 7='Display message' against the job that has MSGW status.   Tom

    Why is the first in MSGW, an error or waiting on a MSGQ or DTAQ?You may need to check the program to see what terminates it or fix the error.  Another option is to put the call to job 2 into the first program to run at it's completion just before the end of job.
