I am trying to write an utility program that takes a dataset and then writes it to esf print que.
My problem is that this is supposed to be used as a generic utility that is used to send different extracts out with. Problem with these extracts are that they all write to datasets of different record length, so that one writes in 256 character format and another in 512 character format.
My problem is now, that I would somehow like to be able to use these different sized datasets as an input dataset in my cobol program.
How do I define the dataset in FILE-CONTROL and FILE-SECTION is order for this to work?
