Issue:

In XCOM R12, the completion messages XCOMM0137I and XCOMM0367I have leading dots rather than zeros:

R12:

XCOMM0137I ............2681600 RECORDS SENT -                        

            FILE=XCOM.R12.SUPPORT.TEST                    

XCOMM0805I TCP/IP CONNECTION ENDED WITH IP=XCOMMVSC                         

XCOMM0367I ...............8002 BLOCKS ..............96465 RECORDS RECEIVED -

            FILE=XCOM.R12.RECEIVED                                             

R11.5:

XCOMM0137I 0000000042 RECORDS SENT SUCCESSFULLY -        

            FILE=XCOM.R115.SUPPORT.TEST 

XCOMM0367I 0000000001 BLOCKS 0000000021 RECORDS RECEIVED SUCCESSFULLY -

            FILE=XCOM.R115.RECEIVED

Cause:

This is enhancement and was introduced with 11.6

Resolution:

This is not a problem.  This is an enhancement that has been in the product since XCOM for z/OS r11.6 went GA.  It was changed to make the messages more readable.  There have been no reports of this causing a problem.

This will not be changed.
