Hi,
I'm attempting to extract the CA7 Information necessary for a particular JOB onto a PS file. I know that the utility SASSBSTR can be used for this purpose, similar to SARBCH for SAR, but I require a bit of information about it. I have the Job as below:

Code:

//*******B JOB (NCA7,0000,,CC),'CA7',MSGCLASS=0,CLASS=0,               
//             NOTIFY=&SYSUID                                         
//JS0100  EXEC PGM=SASSBSTR,PARM='8,DSNPFX=*.CA7'                 
//SYSUDUMP  DD SYSOUT=I                                               
//UCC7CMDS  DD DSN=SOME.PDS.NAME,DISP=SHR                           
//SYSPRINT  DD DSN=*.CA7.EXTRACT,DISP=(,CATLG,DELETE),             
//             UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(150,50),RLSE),                   
//             DCB=(RECFM=FBA,BLKSIZE=0,LRECL=133)                     
//SYSIN     DD *                                                       
/LOGON                                                         
FJOB,FROM=(MMDDYY,0559),SEQ=JOB,SPAN=3,LIST=W                         
FJOB,FROM=(MMDDYY,2359),SEQ=JOB,SPAN=6,LIST=W                         
/LOGOFF                                                               


Now, that SOME.PDS.NAME is a system specific location that we won't need to discuss. I need to know how exactly we can specify the Job we're trying to extract after logon. Also, what information exactly is passed through the PARM to SASSBSTR? Information about SASSBSTR is sparse on this forum & also on the Internet.

We have a manual for it, but I need to request access for it & that'll take too much time, much more than what I have. Any help will be appreciated very much.

Thanks.
Wilson...

If your site has a license for the software, you can get a support id from CA which allows you to log on and download the manual yourself. CA manuals have been available online for quite a few years, so there is no reason to refer to the printed copy -- especially if it takes a while to get.

Well, enrico-sorichetti, that was unnecessarily harsh. You could have provided more info in the time you had taken to post your actual message, see?

Anyhoo, thing is Robert, we are an organisation of more than 100,000 employees. Also, I'm working on the Client Machine, not ours. Client Requirements aren't usually sensitive to time related delays. Requesting Access for anything takes on a whole new notority in that case.

I requested info from ibmmainframes.com as a last resort. I have requested access, it'll take time to get processed. I searched the Web. I searched the forum. I couldn't find any.

If anyone is still willing to help with this issue, after seeing that this forum is the last resort, I would still appreciate it.

Thanks.

Suggest you consider registering yourself for CA SUpport (as Robert mentioned). Then you can download whatever is needed with no delay.

CA documentation is covered by copyright and essentially you are asking people to violate copyright law by providing you data you may -- or may not -- have any right to access.

Furthermore, the parameters passed to SASSBSTR depend at least in part upon how the site is set up -- the 8 in your posted JCL, for example, represents batch terminal number 8. If you used an 8 at our site, your job would fail because we don't have 8 batch terminals set up in CA-7. So knowing the meanings of the parameters is not always enough -- sometimes you need to know about the site usage of those parameters.

If you have access to CA-7 online, you can look up the LJOB command -- which will provide you details about the job. It can even be run in batch through SASSBSTR.
