ACR/SUMMARY on z/OS. I am trying to create MTD totals in a report. Under the Job Information panels I have Selected "Y" for "Use Cycle Processing". Then I selected my reference job. (The reference job is updated monthly to point to the very last day of the batch cycle for the previous month. It's basically used as a date card.) Then under the "computation" section I use 7.
As I understand it this should allow our current batch cycle job to pass the cycle date to the ACR/Summary job and then, for the history items section, use a -30 to go back up to 30 days until Summary hits the cycle date in the reference job. It seems to "sort of" work as I seem to be getting rolling 30 day totals. But seems I could get that without using a reference job at all. I need it to be a true MTD.
Any ideas or suggestions?
