Is there a way to get specific fields from the Job Properties into a spreadsheet format? I would like the Job Name and Semaphore File into a spreadsheet format.

Pat,

Do you need it in Excel spreadsheet ?
It's easy to add an export option for the whole thing - later on you can edit it
( delete some information) within a spreadsheet.
Would you please explain the situation and why you need this feature, so we
can make a conclusion if something has to be added in the next release.
Thanks.

As Len said, you can get the entire job database exported to let's say MS Access database then copy and paste only the desired information. If you have an Excel ODBC driver, you can also export to Excel spreadsheet.

For individual job properties consider creating a script job that will use JobDescribe statement to get the desired properties.

You can also make a Visual Basic or Visual Basic for Application macro that will get the same properties using 24x7 Scheduler API. Please see "24x7 Scheduler External Interfaces and API" help topic for more details. There is an example script for Microsoft Access avaialable in the on-line help file.

I am trying to create a document for our operations area to know what semaphore files trigger what jobs. This is in case there is a breakdown in the job stream. I thought it would be easier to export it to Excel than to cut and paste what I need.

The JobDescribe statement sounds like something that I could use to achieve the desired results, but how do I dynamically read the Job database to get the properties for every job. I remember something about a contest to read the job database and reformat it, but I cannot find it on your website.

Use JobCreate to create new dummy job. This will give the maximum job id. Delete that dummy job using JobDelete. Do a loop ForNext for each job id from 1 to max and then call JobDescribe for every job for each parameter that you want to obtain.
Make sure to set that job property to "ignore errors" so you can skip gaps in job ids (if any exist)
