Hi,

I need some help in resolving an issue with a print job. Job actually prints the data in sysout(spool) and then transfer to the printer/ondemand (report archival). Since reports are huge, it occupies more spool size. Is there any way to print directly to report archival system without printing in spool.

Appreciate your help!!!

SYSOUT=A, where A is priter-class? OR

SYSOUT=(6,,xxx),DEST=xxx - where xxx tells about the destination. ("6" is used just for an ilustration)

all depends on the sysout archival systems being used

when going thru the spool the jcl will not be aware of the process being done by the archival system

in the other case ( seen it, done it ) the jcl must be modified, and it will not even run if the archival system is not active
( approach not recommended )

read the jcl manual about subsystem managed datasets

It depends on your archival system being able to accept input from a file stream instead?

If so, write your report to a dataset with RECFM=VBA/FBA/VBM/FBM, and execute an archival utility to archive the report.
