How to spin off SYSPRINT for GJTRFCST for forecast to a dataset instead of printing the report?



There are times when one would like to spin off the SYSPRINT to a dataset instead of printing the report using program GJTRFCST.

First you will need to apply APAR #: RO01597

In step FORECAST executing program GJTRFCST you will be able to define the SYSPRINT to a data using DCB LRECL=150 RECFM=FBA.   The desired blocksize will be a multiple of 150.  To print out the forecast checkpoint, in the JCL you will use the following so will print to a dataset:

Below line


  add the following

  //SYSPRINT DD  DSN=your.dataset,

  //             DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),

  //             DCB=(LRECL=133,BLKSIZE=1330,RECFM=FB),

  //             SPACE=(CYL,(50,15),RLSE)

As always, please contact CA Technologies support for CA Jobtrac Job Management if 

you have further questions.
