Can we make an output file as dummy in a jcl.
I am trying to execute an ezytrive program which has 2 output files. I want to make one of them DUMMY. But when I try runnin the job by making it DUMMY. Any reason or any solution.

Hi pjnithin,

I don't use ezytrive, but I do use DUMMY output files often. Sometimes, when the program does not have the LRECL defined within the program, it needs to fetch it from the DD. In these cases I need to code the LRECL on the DUMMY.

i.e.

//OUTFILE DD DUMMY,LRECL=124

Give this a try.

Thanks David.
It worked, I didn't had the record length coded in the ezytrieve.
