Does CA View provide a utility that would allow us to PRINT all of our archived report data?
By using a combination of two different CA View utility programs, yes, CA View provides clients with the ability to PRINT all of their archived report data.
1. Execute the ADLIST program with the //CTLCARD DD setup to write to a dataset, and with the following control parameter:
/LIST ARCHDATE=* CCREATE(PRINT)
This will do two things. It will produce a report showing you all of the reports that you have archived in CA View. And it will write SARBCH "/PRINT" transaction records into the //CTLCARD DD file. The transaction records would look similar to the following:
2. You would then need to feed this //CTLCARD DD file into a run of the SARBCH utility as the INPUT file. (i.e. As the //SYSIN DD specification instead of a SARBCH control parameter).
For additional information on the SARSAM routines and installation, you can refer to "Chapter 1: Database Utilities" in the CA View Programming Guide.
