As an administrator, you can print output in batch or online from CA View and CA Deliver. You can also select a printer, print to a data set, allocate a new data set to process output, configure communication with an external print device, specify print attributes, and reprint CA Deliver bundles.
  • In ALL, SARO, SAR, and JOB modes, the
    Print to data set
    options display only if the PRTDSN initialization parameter is set to YES. The PRTDSN initialization parameter is only supported for databases that have been versioned to release 14.0.
Use the P (PRT) command to print online, or the J (JPRT) command to print with a batch job, from a SYSOUT, JOB, or Data Set Selection List panel. You can use P (PRT) and J (JRPT) on the command line of any browse panel.
An Index Selection List panel accepts only the J command.
You can use the P and J commands in the following user modes:
  • ALL
  • SARO
  • EXPO
  • SAR
  • EXP
  • JOB
To use the P (PRT) command to print online or use the J (JPRT) command to print with a batch job, as follows:
  • Input selection code P or J in a Sysout, JOB, or Data Set List Selection panel
  • Input selection code J in an Index Selection List
  • Input J or JPRT on the command line of any browse panel
  • Input P or PRT on the command line of any browse panel
The P and the J commands both initiate print processes: P
prints directly online and J prints by running a batch job. These print methods differ as follows:
  • The J print method prints through a background, batch job by providing input fields that create, modify, or both the JCL that runs the job; the P method does not.
  • Several print attributes used by the J print method are not available under the P print method.
  • Once you enter the SUBMIT command for a batch print job (J selection code), or when you log off, the Reprint JCL Panel JCL appears for you to modify the JOB statement information.
  • For JOB mode, if the reports associated with the job reside on more than one tape, any P type online reprint is automatically changed to J type batch reprint.
These considerations apply to archived output that you want to retrieve for printing.
  • You have immediate access to output that resides on disk, has been temporarily loaded to disk, resides on optical disk with page-level retrieval, or resides on tape–if you are using EAS for tape and robotics.
  • For JOB mode, you have immediate access to the selected output if all of the reports for the job reside on the same tape and if you are using EAS.
  • If your selected output resides only on tape and you are authorized for online tape mounts, the system operator is notified to mount the tape.
    Only TSO and ISPF/SPF online allow tape mounting. For all TSO users (both native TSO and ISPF/SPF), whether you are authorized for online tape mounts is determined by how your system administrator has set up your TSO ACCOUNT command. Your terminal remains locked until the tape has been mounted and your output has been copied to disk. You can optionally disable all online tape mounts for CA View with the MOUNT=NO initialization parameter.
  • If your selected output resides on optical disk with file-level retrieval, the output is loaded back to DASD.
