Hi! This is my first post in this forum. I am using below formdef and pagedef for printing DUPLEX letter information. When i submit the print job the letter is printed twice in duplex mode eventhough we specified copies=1. Please let me know what is wrong with below syntax.

FORMDEF XXXX
DUPLEX NORMAL
REPLACE YES
PRESENT PORTRAIT
DIRECTION DOWN;
COPYGROUP F2XXXX OFFSET 0 0
DUPLEX NORMAL;
OVERLAY XXXX;
SUBGROUP BOTH COPIES1 ;
PAGEDEF XXXX
REPLACE YES;
FONT GT12;
PAGEFORMAT P2XXXX
DIRECTION DOWN
WIDTH 8.5 IN HEIGHT 11 IN;
SETUNITS LINESP 6 LPI;
PRINTLINE REPEAT 53 CHANNEL 1
FONT GT12
POSITION 0.00 1.90;
PRINTLINE REPEAT 1 CHANNEL 3
FONT GT12
POSITION 0.00 0.30;

Thanks.

None of so called “SYSIN statements” can be considered as something related to JCL, even a little bit. Nor to VSAM...

P.S.
Maybe, your question is about using the PSF (the Print Service Facility)?

You must know it better than me; nobody has to try guessing, what did you mean by your question...

You seem to have TWO times DUPLEX NORMAL specified, isn't it? And please, use code tags when presenting code/data.

FYI:
Many of the forum members do not read at all ANY code sample unless it is presented in THIS way -
Code:
//PPFA     EXEC PGM=AKQPPFA                           
//SYSPRINT DD   SYSOUT=*                             
//FORMLIB  DD   DSN=XXX.FDEFLIB,DISP=SHR     
//PAGELIB  DD   DSN=XXX.PDEFLIB,DISP=SHR     
//SYSIN    DD   *                                     
FORMDEF XXXX
  DUPLEX NORMAL                     
  REPLACE YES                       
  PRESENT PORTRAIT                 
  DIRECTION DOWN;                   
COPYGROUP F2XXXX OFFSET 0 0       
  DUPLEX NORMAL;                   
OVERLAY XXXX;                     
SUBGROUP BOTH COPIES1 ;             
PAGEDEF XXXX                     
    REPLACE YES;                   
FONT GT12;                         
PAGEFORMAT P2XXXX               
    DIRECTION DOWN                 
    WIDTH 8.5 IN HEIGHT 11 IN;     
SETUNITS LINESP 6 LPI;             
PRINTLINE REPEAT 53 CHANNEL 1       
          FONT GT12

It is rudeness to demand answers from other participants, and at the same time completely ignore any clarifying questions from them.

sorry for the delayed response. I used below sysin stmt.

//SYSPRINT DD   SYSOUT=*                             
//FORMLIB  DD   DSN=XXX.FDEFLIB,DISP=SHR     
//PAGELIB  DD   DSN=XXX.PDEFLIB,DISP=SHR     
//SYSIN    DD   *                                     
FORMDEF XXXX
  DUPLEX NORMAL                     
  REPLACE YES                       
  PRESENT PORTRAIT                 
  DIRECTION DOWN;                   
  OFFSET 0 0  ;     
OVERLAY XXXX;                     
SUBGROUP BOTH COPIES1 ;             
PAGEDEF XXXX                     
    REPLACE YES;                   
FONT GT12;                         
PAGEFORMAT P2XXXX               
    DIRECTION DOWN                 
    WIDTH 8.5 IN HEIGHT 11 IN;     
SETUNITS LINESP 6 LPI;             
PRINTLINE REPEAT 53 CHANNEL 1       
          FONT GT12             
          POSITION 0.00 1.90;   
PRINTLINE REPEAT 1 CHANNEL 3     
          FONT GT12             
          POSITION 0.00 0.30;
