Why it the assemble parameter NOASA changed to ASA during assemble ? The JCL in the processor has NOASA passed through the PARM keyword. The assemble listing is showing ASA.


This depends on the RECFM of the SYSPRINT allocated dataset. If SYSPRINT is allocated to a file with RECFM=FB, NOASA will be used. If SYSPRINT has RECFM=FBA, then the ASA parameter will be used for the assemble. 

When allocating SYSPRINT to a file, use the RECFM to determine the assemble parameter you expect. See IBM ASMA90 documentation for details.
