Question:
Does CA Dispatch provide a batch job that can be used to selectively REPRINT reports and/or MSGCLASS data from archive or online viewing?
Environment:
z/os
Answer:
CA Dispatch does not provide a "batch job" that you can submit to perform reprints for selected reports or selected MSGCLASS entries being stored in either ARCHIVE or ONLINE VIEWING. At least not one that allows you to be SELECTIVE in terms of what "report name" and/or "job name" you want reprinted.

We have a utility called the "Batch Extract Request" utility, job DSEXBDE(L), that can be used to reprint reports from ARCHIVE, but the only selection parameters available for this utility are a FROM and TO DATE setting and a RECIPIENT selection option. Using this utility, ALL reports that fall within the date range specified would be reprinted.
