I am not familiar with the MVS syntax for JCL, but if there is a way to test for size of file in the JCL there may be a way to avoid
executing the Multiload script. You could check if size > 0 and only then execute the Multiload. That is the way we do some loads in
Windows 2000 so that it does not have the overhead (during execution of the script) of setting up a Multiload process before it figures out
that the file is missing or empty.
