Step-level statement usage

A step-level statement must follow immediately after an EXEC PGM= programName statement. A step-level statement affects only the step that precedes it. Step-level statements are not required. If you do not supply a step-level statement, the step is processed according to the specified job-level statement, the job-level default of SPLIT, or as set by the READJTL command.

Step-level statements do not override the BYPASS or ANALYZE job-level statements. If a step-level JTL statement is detected when the BYPASS or ANALYZE job-level statement is in effect, the step-level statement is ignored (treated as a JCL comment).
