Administrators use the Online System to configure the
main
and
optional
print attribute panels.
The
main
type of print attribute panel includes the most commonly used print attributes. These attributes appear as data fields, available to users in ALL, SARO, EXPO, and JOB modes.
The default data contained in these fields comes from the print data archived with the output when that output was originally produced.
To see a full list of print attributes on the Print Output Parameters panel, enter the O command and press Enter. For more information, see Print Output Parameters.
The
optional
type of print attribute panel offers a shortened list of four print attributes shown as data fields for the print process.
These panels -- the primary optional panel and the alternate optional panel -- are provided as shortcuts from the full list of attributes in the main attribute panel for users in ALL, SARO, EXPO, and JOB modes. These panels are the exclusive print attribute panels for SAR and EXP users. The data contained in these fields is kept by the product on a per-session basis.
Print attributes are extracted from //OUTPUT statements at the time output is produced. For reports produced through CA Deliver, attributes for reprinting are extracted only if those reports were archived with the Automatic Report Archival feature of CA View System Extensions.
