Jacky, it was Bright idea to post your question to the 'L where there are a fair number of MXG practitioners! But, it would probably be a better bet to talk to your friendly Systems Programmer, Capacity Planner, or Computer Performance Analyst. One or more of them would be acquainted with the specific JCL configuration that is needed to run MXG-based reports in your organization. One or more of them could give you a CONTENTS Listing of the JOBS PDB so that you can pick and choose your variables. One or more of them could give you the SAS code needed to get the job statistics you need from the JOBS PDB. One or more of them could give you the security rights to access the JOBS PDB and other MXG files that you need. So, it would probably behoove you to bring one or more of them a double-caramel-latte and a raisin scone first thing tomorrow morning.
Jacky, best of luck in all of your SAS endeavors!
I hope that this suggestion proves helpful now, and in the future!
