An SQL query is executed via DBSQLPR and the selected rows are saved on an z/OS dataset with LRECL 80 (allocated to STDOUT dataset). The job ran fine when running Datacom 14.0 but after the upgrade to 15.0, it gets RC 2020.
Datacom 15.0 corrected some DBSQLPR errors to file management, so some functions have changed.
CA Datacom 15.0 and above
The problem occurs when the STDOUT dataset has a LRECL=121 or less. If so, a PRTWIDTH option must be specified for DBSQLPR. The value of this option must match the LRECL of the STDOUT dataset. SQL 15.0 APAR ST07726 (or SQL 15.1 ST07727) must be applied too.
A quick workaround: If adding any of the following options: NOECHO NOPAGEHDR NOPAGES it works fine on 15.0 too.
