Restarting within a Proc

Question: Is it possible to use restart parameter in proc's. Suppose if I use 5 instream procs in one job,then I want to restart from the 3rd proc. How can I?

Answer: If the third proc is coded:

//proc3 exec thrdproc

and the first step within that proc is coded:

//step1 exec pgm=prog1

then to restart from that program you would change the job statement to specify


If prog1 has been taking checkpoints and you want to start from a specific checkpoint then you add that to the end of the restart parameter as well.
