Hi Siva,

Generally we give the report record length as 132 and in the JCL if the record format is FB we will give LRECL=132 and if record format is FBA we will give LRECL=133 (1 byte extra for advancing)

Regarding the COND parameter if step 1 RC= 0 then it will not execute any of the below steps.

Step3 is not going to check only the previous step's return code. It checks the return codes issued so far,similarly with step4.

A standard sheet of computer output paper is 11 x 13 7/8 inches. That's 11 inches from perf-to-perf, and 13 7/8 inches wide, including the tractor feeds.

An IBM-3211 impact printer uses a 10-pitch (10 CPI) print mechanism, much like a typewtriter. Given that you typically would want to remove the tractor feeds, which would take away about a half-inch of the paper's width, that would leave you with about 13.2 inches of printable surface. So, if you wish to completely fill the page from edge-to-edge, 132 10-pitch characters is just the right amount needed.
