Introduction:

Customer is looking for an utility to read the Datacom RXX file.

Question:

I would like to know who was doing what from 9/2/2016 14:05:00 to 14:10:00 from the RXX tape.  

Do you have a utility program handy?

Answer:

Run DBUTILTY program with SYSIN like:

REPORT AREA=RXX,DBID= ,TABLE= ,LOGPRINT=DETAIL,RANGEDT= 

where 

RANGEDT= Specify two date/times to provide a range (low to high). 

The date/times are specified as a 28 character number with the lower date/time immediately followed by the higher date/time. Each date/time is 14 characters in the format 'ccyymmddhhmmss'. For example: 

'2002121400000020020228235959'. Note that the input is not read beyond one record higher than this ending value. 

See the DBUTLTY Reference Guide for samples and other possible selection values . 


Additional information:

You can also write a Cobol program that calls READRXX to get this information out of the RXX . 

See the CA Datacom Database and System Administration Guide .
