Output definition parameters describe physical characteristics of output reports or files and specify individual report formats. The four types of output definition parameters are:
  • OUTPUT (OUT)
     
    Determines whether output contains only detail or total lines, or both. This parameter is not necessary if system defaults are appropriate for the report. This parameter is required for a specific report only if the values coded on the PROFILE parameter or at installation time are inappropriate for the report.
  • SORT
    Specifies the order to sort extract data, and also specifies control breaks using control break codes. These codes force a control break when the value of the sort field changes. Usually, subtotals print when a control break executes.
  • Title
    (Optional) Can be used to define a title for each report. If a title is specified, CA Culprit prints the title at the top of each report page, along with the report number, system date, and report page number.
  • Edit
    Defines the contents and formats of output lines. The three types of edit parameters are:
    • Type 4: Defines header lines for the report.
    • Type 5: Defines detail lines for the report. At least one type 5 edit parameter is required for each CA Culprit report.
    • Type 6: Defines total lines for the report.
