    job_list Daily procedures (D1, D2, etc.) don't work

    Description:
    I am trying to run a batch job several times a day using a job_list daily procedure, like this:

    W1 D3 Y ABC50 p_item_05 ABC50,ARCHIVES,ARCHIVES^K,,8,1,SCIEN,,Y,,archives_shelf_list,N,00,

    but the job daemon is completely ignoring the line. My job_list.conf looks like this:

    ! Define weekly procedure slots:
    !1 2 3
    !!----!-!!!!!!!
    W1 W NYYYYYN
    ...
    ...
    ! Define daily procedure slot:

    !1 2 3 4 5
    !!----!-!!!!!-!!!!!-!!!!!
    ...
    D3 D 09:00 21:00 01:00


    Is there any reason why this will not work?

    Resolution:
    It seems that "Wn Dn" doesn't work.

    We found that

    nn Dn

    needed to be used (where "00" is Sunday, "01", Monday, etc.) and then repeated for each day we wanted to run it:

    00 D3 Y ABC50 p_item_05 ABC50,ARCHIVES,ARCHIVES^K,,8,1,SCIEN,,Y,,archives_shelf_list,N,00,
    01 D3 Y ABC50 p_item_05 ABC50,ARCHIVES,ARCHIVES^K,,8,1,SCIEN,,Y,,archives_shelf_list,N,00,
    <etc.>
