on the Data Compare Strategy Services screen displays the Data Compare Execution Specification screen. This option unloads the data (optional), runs the compare, and produces the report.

Batch Specification Screen
The Batch Specification screen appears if the mode is B (Batch) when data unload is started from either the Data Compare Unload Specification screen or Data Compare Execution Specification screen.
Viewing Unloaded Data
Before comparing the data, there may be the need to confirm that the data has been unloaded, or a user might want to browse or edit it. These functions can be performed from the Data Compare Strategy Services screen.
View the unload data sets associated with a data compare strategy by using the L (List) line command. The L command can also be entered in the primary command line to list the unload data sets associated with all the strategies. When this command is used, the TYPE field appears, displaying the unload method (CA Fast Unload or UNLOAD utility) that was used to unload the data set. A question mark in the TYPE field signifies that the unload method used will be determined when the comparison is run.
To confirm that the data has been unloaded, users can browse or edit the data sets in question. Enter
B
to browse a data set, or
E
to edit it. An ISPF-like editor appears, which can be used to edit or browse the unloaded data. Press F3 (End) to return to the Data Compare Strategy Services screen.
Selecting Unloaded Data to Compare
If more than one unload data set has been generated for the source or target table, the data sets to be compared must be specified. This can be done on the Data Compare Strategy Services screen.
