1 PASSWORDProvides the password associated with the user name that you specify with the JOB card when you submit a batch job through a card reader. Although the PASSWORD card is required, the password on the card is optional if the account has a null password. The PASSWORD command is valid only in a batch job submitted through a card reader and requires that a dollar sign ($) precede the PASSWORD command on the card. Format $ PASSWORD [password] NOTE To change your password, use the SET PASSWORD command. For help on SET PASSWORD, type HELP SET PASSWORD at DCL level. 2 Parameter password Specifies the password associated with the user name specified with the JOB command. The password can be 1 to 31 characters long. If you are submitting the job from an account with a null password, omit the password specifier on the PASSWORD card.
