Issue:

The client was using CCREATE in ADLIST, to create /PRINT control cards.

They needed to exceed the 60-character control card length maximum, and were wondering as to how that could be accomplished.

 

Environment:

CA View

 

Resolution:

The client was advised that if they wished to accommodate more characters, that they could:

 . Make their own program changes to SARSAM8 (source for ADLIST). 

 . Shorten their "DDNAME=RPT" field, in the CCREATE card, to "DDNAME=RP" (to gain 1 character) or to "DDNAME=R" (to gain 2 characters). 

 

As the client chose to shorten the DDNAME field, they needed to modify the DDnames in affected JCL, to reference the shorter name.
