Hi there,
Hopefully this is a quick question but its been confounding me for a while.
In my OUTFIL statemement i have
Code:
TRAILER1=(1:'END OF REPORT')

which is being printed with a control char of 1. How do I manually adjust this please?

Many thanks

REMOVECC can be used to remove the ANSI control characters from a report. In this case, an 'A' is not added to or required for the RECFM and an extra byte is not added to or required for the LRECL.

Richard,

If you don't want the control characters at all, you can use the REMOVECC option of OUTFIL to remove them. If you want the control characters, but don't want the '1' (page eject) for TRAILER1, you can use the BLKCCT1 option of OUTFIL to replace the '1' with a blank. If you want to do something else, please explain in more detail what you want to do exactly.

Thankyou for your help Frank and CICS Guy. Using the blank instead of '1' is exactly what I need.
