WRKJOBSCDE gotcha

I found this out the hard way - when manually submitting a scheduled job. When you set up a scheduled job, you can specify a specific job description (*JOBD) that the job runs under. Works great. Except when you want to submit that job immediately (opt 10). Then the default for the initial library list (INLLIBL) is *CURRENT - not the initial library list of the job description!

To make sure your job runs with the initial library list in your job description, when the job is prompted for the submit, press F10, and page down twice to change the default INLLIBL value to *JOBD.
