b. Put the cursor anywhere on the pale blue text describing option 2 and press the Enter

The Analyze a Specific Job panel as shown in Figure 9-5 has many fields. The critical field is
the Job name field. If the job name field is an asterisk (‘*’), then when the Enter key is
pressed, it will present the Select an Active Job for option 2 panel. This panel looks and
operates much like the first panel in option 1. You select a job simply by placing the cursor on
the job name and pressing the Enter key.

2. We also select the fields for Delay information and Dataset Information and verify the
History DSN, Max Duration, and Max Samples fields.

JCL for REDBK1P as shown in Figure 9-6.
