Example 1: Submitting an as400 Job
SBMJOB JOB(SPECIAL) JOBD(MYLIB/MYJOBD)

The CALL command is placed on the submitted job's message queue so that the program MYPROG can be called and run later.

SBMJOB JOB(PAYROLL) JOBD(PAYROLL) INQMSGRPY(*RQD)
This as400 sbmjob command submits a job named PAYROLL to the system. All the information needed for this job (such as the job queue and routing data but not the inquiry message control value) is contained in the job description PAYROLL, or the job that is currently running. The library list in effect for the job issuing this command is used to find the job description. All inquiry messages sent during running of this job requires the receiver of the inquiry message to reply.
