February 2007 Technical Tip – Easytrieve: Redirecting report output
When creating a report with Easytrieve, the default action is to include the report in SYSPRINT with the program listing and error messages. It is often desireable to redirect the report to a separate DD. This article will demonstrate how this is done.
There are three steps in redirecting report output to a separate DD:
The following program demonstrates how this is done. The program reads a file of my kids from //MYKIDS (using instream data), and writes a report containing girls only to //MYGIRLS:
The report is written to //MYGIRLS and is shown here with the generated carriage control characters. (The NOADJUST option on the REPORT statement causes the report to be written left-justified rather than centered.)
