JCL to submit particular steps of another JCL using IEBEDIT

IEBEDIT Example- JCL to submit particular steps of another JCL You may get a scenario where you wish to submit/execute only particular steps of a jcl and exclude  others. Although this can be handled by using COND parameter but this would require editing the original JCL to include COND parameter at each step and may be tedious exercise, and you  might not have the access to change the original JCL. The following JCL using IEBEDIT utility can be helpful in acheiving the above without  editing the original JCL. This would include Step name STEP010 of Jcl JOBNAM1 present in library
