Question:

With SARBCH /LOAD, can multiple reports be written to one physical-sequential file?

 

Environment:
CA View - All releases
Answer:

To be able to load multiple reports to the same physical-sequential file, in the JCL should be used: 

//RPTOUT01 DD DSN=xxxxxx.xxxxxx.RPTOUT01, 

// DISP=(MOD,CATLG,DELETE), 

The use of MOD will add reports to the same file, whereas NEW would only load the last report mentioned to the file. 

Note: If multiple reports will be loaded, the reports should have the same DCB information.
