Hi

I am printing a report with multiple headings and details in the spool. In JCL I have defined the DD Statement as

//REPORT DD SYSOUT=&SYSOUT,DCB=(RECFM=FM,BLKSIZE=133)

However the report is created in spool with length 135.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SDSF OUTPUT DISPLAY TESTJOB JOB04288 DSID 191 LINE 0 COLUMNS 56- 135
COMMAND INPUT ===> SCROLL ===> CSR
********************************* TOP OF DATA **********************************
TEST INTERFACE REPORT 05-55 04-26-2016


I checked all the headings/details and all of them sum up to 132.

Please suggest ?

Thanks

Somehow I do not think that this is correct! You know how to use the code tags - use them.

What happens when you give lrec =132 in dcb and compares against the above report?

if the program specifies lrecl 135 internally, then that is what you get, no matter what you specify in JCL.
