Here is how to implement the CA View EAS, to have the ability to browse reports directly from tape, without the need to do a SARBCH /LOAD of the report, which requires database data space usage.



 . Define an EAS task, so as to include something similar to the following:

//SAREAS   EXEC PGM=SAREAS,                                
//  PARM=('C=XCF,E=xxxx,LS=L350,MA=600,MI=15,NB=50,NREA=4',
//  'NREQ=200,NT=4,T=ONLY'),                              
//        TIME=NOLIMIT,REGION=0M                          
//STEPLIB  DD  DISP=SHR,DSN=VIEW.CVDELOAD   <=== Modify, if used                
//SYSPRINT DD  SYSOUT=x                                   

 . . Note: The "E=xxxx" is the (E)ASTNAME parameter.

 . Match the value in the EASTNAME parameter with one of the SARINIT EASTNAMn=... parameters,
   using EASTNAM1=..., EASTNAM2=..., or EASTNAM3=... (using the first available).
