Question: 

In CA Roscoe, if I perform a command such as DIS A+, then many screens of jobs starting with 'A' show up. I would like to copy the SCREEN output to my AWS, using:

COPY SCREEN R

This only gives me the first page of the SCREEN output. Is there a way to have all the pages of output copied to the AWS?

Answer: 

COPY SCR R just copies the data that is displayed on the screen, not all pages of the display. Although there is no automatic way to copy all the screens at once, you may continue to COPY screen by screen.

Repeat this procedure until all screens are saved:

  • DIS A+
  • Scroll forward to the next uncopied screen
  • COPY SCR B

Then type A to attach the AWS. If you want to, delete any of the command line information and SAVE.
