SYSIN01 Parameters

You specify SYSIN01 parameters in the SYSIN01 DD statement of the XCOMJOB JCL. This statement is described later on this page.

You specify SYSIN01 parameters in the SYSIN01 DD statement of the XCOMJOB JCL. This statement is described later on this page.
SYSIN01 parameters are divided into the following subsections. For details about any of these subsections, select the related entry in the left-pane TOC. 
  • Symbolic Parameters
    Symbolic parameters let you store transfer parameters in control files with variable data that is resolved to other values at schedule time.
  • General SYSIN01 Parameters
    This section discusses parameters that can be specified in any batch job.
  • SYSIN01 Parameters for FILETYPE=FILE
    This section discusses parameters that must be used when FILETYPE=FILE is coded in the SYSIN01 DD statement.
  • SYSIN01 Parameters for FILETYPE=HISTORY
    This section discusses parameters that must be used when FILETYPE=HISTORY is coded in the SYSIN01 DD statement.
  • SYSIN01 Parameters for FILETYPE=REPORT
    This section discusses parameters that must be used when FILETYPE=REPORT is coded in the SYSIN01 DD statement.
  • SYSIN01 Tape Parameters
    This section discusses parameters that are used when tape data sets are being transferred.
  • SYSIN01 DCB Parameters
    This section discusses parameters that are used to allocate space for transferred data.
  • SYSIN01 Transfer Control Parameters
    This section discusses parameters that are associated with CA XCOM Data Transport transfer control (XTC) feature, which is concerned with the control of multiple interdependent transfers.
  • XCOMJOB Return Codes
No special parameters are required for FILETYPE=JOB.
SYSIN01 DD Statement
The SYSIN01 parameters passed to CA XCOM Data Transport can be coded either directly in the SYSIN01 input stream or indirectly in a data set that the SYSIN01 DD statement references. Using the SYSIN01 DD statement only to reference the data set where the transfer control parameters are coded is preferable for transfer jobs run regularly with the same processing options.
Main Coding Rules
The SYSIN01 parameters must be coded according to the same rules that are used in coding standard SYSIN in-stream information. Among the most important rules to be observed when coding SYSIN01 parameters are:
  • Parameter data can span multiple lines as long as a plus sign (+) is placed at the end of each line to be continued. The continuation line starts in columns 2 through 16.
  • Each new parameter must start in column one.
  • Parameter values with embedded spaces, quotes, or a plus sign (+) followed by a space, which would indicate a continuation line, must be enclosed in either single or double quotes. The single or double quotes, if used, must delimit the beginning and end of each line of the parameter value.
Preserving SYSIN01 Information
If you want the SYSIN01 parameters for a file transfer to be included in the CA XCOM Data Transport activity log, code the PARM parameter LOG=YES on the EXEC card of the JCL for the transfer.
