Question:

 
Why, when using both TSS ARCHIVE and MODEL commands, is the output generated with the American format of MM/DD/YY in the header,
even though the DATE control option is set to use the European format - DATE(DD/MM/YY)? 
 

 

Answer: 

 

 

The date in the header field is written in format MM/DD/YY. There is no check of DATE() control option done by CA Top Secret. There is no way to change this from the MM/DD/YY format in the header. The product is working as designed.

 

Additional Information:

 

Refer to CA Top Secret for z/OS Control Options Guide for detailed information about the DATE() control option.
Refer to CA Top Secret for z/OS Command Functions Guide for detailed information about TSS ARCHIVE/MODEL commands.
 
Here is an example of using the  ARCHIVE keyword:
 
TSS LIST(acid) ARCHIVE INTO(datasetname[(membername)])
 
TSS DELETE(acid) ARCHIVE INTO(datasetname[(membername)])
 
Here is an example of using the MODEL keyword:
 
TSS MODEL USING(modelacid) ACID(newacid)
 
TSS MODEL USING(modelacid) ACID(newacid) [INTO(datasetname[(membername)])]
 
Here is a sample of the first line of the output of the command:
 
/*MODEL ACID NEWCAS STORED 02/18/10-10.45.51 BY MASTER1 ON XE15 USING CASSIE
 
The date format is MM/DD/YY.
