The client's end-user found that a report being reviewed receives "0001" in the XCODE field of the Sysout Selection List.  They want to know as to how this field is populated.

The Sysout Selection List XCODE is field is populated with a non-zero exception condition that occurred in the job that created a report collected by View. 

In the SARSTC task is an optional exception code table, found in //SARXCTAB DD ....

The contents of the table defines as to how exception code processing is handled.

If there is no //SARXCTAB DD defined, the default used for exception condition processing is "/ * LAST". 

"/* LAST" means that the XCODE field would reflect the last non-zero condition occurring in the job generating the report. 

Many clients have found a setting of "/* HIGH" to be useful, as it would show the highest non-zero condition encountered in the job. 

If there are instances where the presentation of an exception code is conditional, that would be placed in the SARXCTAB table as well.
