Question:

   When trying to extract members from a CA Librarian Master file, the percent sign (%) in column 1 is being stripped off and converted to a blank. How can I prevent this? 

 

Answer

   Add a -OPT COL1% statement to the SYSIN DD input.

   For example:

//SYSIN DD * 
-OPT GPO 
-OPT COL1% 
-SEL NAME=,EXEC(R) 
-END

 

Additional Information:

    For more information on  COL1%  and other processing options, see Chapter 5: Processing Options  in the CA Librarian Batch Command Reference Guide.
