FILETYPE=REPORT Parameters

You can use the following additional SYSIN01 parameters when FILETYPE=REPORT is coded in the SYSIN01 DD statement of the XCOMJOB JCL:
xdtz12
You can use the following additional SYSIN01 parameters when FILETYPE=REPORT is coded in the SYSIN01 DD statement of the XCOMJOB JCL:
CHARS
This parameter indicates the character set JES uses when the report is sent to a remote system.
  • xxxx
    Specifies up to four alphanumeric characters representing the character set JES uses when a report is sent to a remote system.
Default:
None
CLASS
This parameter specifies the print class to which the report is printed. For example, if the receiving system is a z/OS-supported mainframe, indicate the JES SYSOUT class desired.
  • x
    Specifies one alphanumeric character representing the print class where the report is printed.
When sending a report to an HP OpenVMS system, if you specify a value for CLASS, make certain that it is a valid value for this remote system. If it is not, the print job fails. Avoid this by defining this parameter with a value of null (binary zero), space, or A.
Default:
A
CONTROL
This parameter indicates the printer carriage control codes present in the data stream.
  • ASA
    ASA standard carriage control codes are used.
  • MACHINE
    Specific hardware-dependent codes are used.
  • NONE
    No carriage control codes are used.
Default:
NONE
COPY (or COPIES)
This parameter indicates the number of report copies printed.
  • 0 to 255
    Specifies the number of report copies to print.
Default:
1
DEST
This parameter indicates the printer or other device on the remote system receiving the report.
  • Up to 21 characters
    Specifies the printer or device on the remote system receiving the report.
The DEST parameter can contain a fully qualified printer file name when the report is sent to an AS/400.
The actual number of bytes allowed for this parameter is dependent on the remote system.
You can use symbolic variables with this parameter in batch SYSIN01. For more information, see Symbolic Parameters.
Default:
System default printer
DISP
This parameter determines whether to keep or delete the report file after printing on the remote system. This value is ignored when the remote system is an IBM mainframe.
  • KEEP
    Keep the report file after it is printed on the remote system.
  • DELETE
    Delete the report file after it is printed on the remote system.
Default:
DELETE
FCB
This parameter indicates the name of the Forms Control Buffer that JES uses from SYS1.IMAGELIB when the report is sent to a remote z/OS system.
  • xxxx
    Specifies the name of the Forms Control Buffer that JES uses when the report is sent to a remote z/OS system. The name can be up to four alphanumeric characters long.
Default:
System default value
You can use symbolic variables with this parameter in batch SYSIN01. For more information, see Symbolic Parameters.
FORM
This parameter tells the remote operator the kind of form on which to print a report.
  • xxxx
    Specifies up to four alphanumeric characters representing the kind of form on which to print the report.
If you specify a special form value, make certain the value is valid for the remote system. Otherwise, the print job fails. If in doubt, use the default.
You can use symbolic variables with this parameter in batch SYSIN01. For more information, see Symbolic Parameters.
REPORT
Supplies the title of the report.
  • Up to 21 alphanumeric characters
    Specifies the title of the report.
Depending on the operating system printing the report, this parameter can only be used as a comment, which would not be printed as part of the report. It may be part of a banner page that is produced with the report.
IBM iSeries and HP OpenVMS print this field in a banner page. With reports sent to a z/OS system, this entry becomes part of the banner page. The banner page consists of the report title and the values that are designated in the CLASS and FORM parameters.
You can use symbolic variables with this parameter in batch SYSIN01. For more information, see Symbolic Parameters.
REPORTHOLD
This parameter designates whether the report can be held or prepared for immediate printing.
  • YES
    Hold the report.
  • NO
    Print the report immediately.
This parameter cannot be used with a Windows or a UNIX partner.
Default:
NO
SPOOL
This parameter designates whether to spool the report to disk or to print it directly. If the remote system is z/OS, this operand has no effect on the transfer.
  • YES
    Spool the report to disk.
  • NO
    Do not spool; print the report immediately.
Default:
YES
WRITER
This parameter specifies the name of the external writer that is to process the report on the remote system.
  • xxxxxxxx
    Specifies up to eight alphanumeric characters identifying the external writer that is to process this report on the remote system.
You can use symbolic variables with this parameter in batch SYSIN01. For more information, see Symbolic Parameters.
