Hi Michael, I haven't used FEP myself but It looks as if what you propose could 
work, although I don`t understand why you would need to check job priority, job 
owner, and job name to check if it is still running. Wouldn't NXJOB(id) which 
returns -1 if the job dosn't exist be sufficient and simpler?

Best Wishes

Hi Duncan,
Thanks for your suggestion, I did think of that idea.
Also, I have found FEP(...) which returns the id of the job created.
So, I'm guessing I could do something along these lines ...
id = FEP(etc)
REPeat wait
    IF PJOB(id)=0  : IF OJOB(id)=0  : IF JOB$(id)="" : EXIT wait
END REPeat wait
I haven't tried this yet. Doing it this way, the task name would not need to be
