Schedule a job to run hourly

Would you like to run a job from the job scheduler every hour, every 30 minutes, or even every five minutes? With the Change Job Schedule Time (CHGSCDTIM) command you can do just that. Simply execute the CHGSCDTIM command from your program that is submitted from the job scheduler and specify the job schedule name and increment time. You can increment either the schedule time or the current system time. The latter option allows you to re-run the job a specified time increment after the current job is finished. You can also specify a cutoff and reset time, allowing you to limit execution within a time range.
