So give a DD convenient for a new file to your SYSPRINT.

Do not make things complicate.

That will be your try.

Let's be honest here, it is hardly rocket science.

The current SYSPRINT DD routes the output to sysout, so if you want the output in a dataset, then change the DD statement to reflect what you want.

Ped,

you have been a member of this forum long enough to realize
that most posters use their own vocabulary
- actually their own world view of computers.

as usual, it is a 'not what I said' but 'what I meant' -

Dick,

You are right, but I am a devil tester ( Test is my main activity on mainframe now since 12 years - and I love that ) so I have to be extremely precise. I just do my job. icon_cool.gif

Have a nice day

Ped,

sorry, was being sarcastic.

so many of the posters do not use correct terminology,
have little or no knowledge of computers,

I thought I would throw a little sarcasm in, had not meant to insult or attack you.

another example of ??

'below the sysout' -- - what does that mean?

'it wrote spool info into a ps file' -- what wrote? spool info? what are we talking about???


the op finally changed the destination from spool to dasd.

SYSPRINT is the data set that contains output from the utilities called by SMP/E while SYSOUT is System Output; a data definition (DD) statement used to identify a data set as a system output data set -- so decide what you're looking for.

SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*
from your last post in this thread does not seem to be in logical-flow with what you asked in very first post of this thread. Probabaly you meant, you used something like
Code:
//SYSOUT   DD  SYSOUT=some.dsn.here,DISP=(??,??,??)
If this is what you did? If yes, probably you can understand why Dick and Ped were lost with your description.

PS. No offences please... icon_smile.gif
