#   CAISCHD0540 - Cycle Count Precedence
#                 Controls how many times cyclic jobs are repeated. Cyclic jobs
#                 are defined with a start time, a repeat interval or frequency,
#                 and the total number of occurrences (cycle count).
#                 Valid values are:
#                 N - Jobs are repeated either the specified number of
#                     occurrences or until the new day autoscan, whichever comes
#                     first. Thus it is possible that the job is not run the
#                     desired number of times if the new day autoscan occurs
#                     before all scheduled occurrences of the cyclic job. This
#                     is especially true for demanded jobs.
#                Y - The cycle count takes precedence over the new day autoscan
#                    time and all occurrences of the cyclic job are run
#                    according to the defined frequency, crossing the new day
#                    autoscan boundary.
