Resolution

When doing a reprint in View, in the Print Attributes, using "BANNER ==> *" will suppress a banner from being printed. 

. Print Attributes: 
. BANNER ===> * 

If reports come from CA Deliver, there can be a choice to not use banners there as well. 

 . Note: CA Deliver cannot suppress a JES banner poage. 

 . In the Report Definition Attributes, you can define a report with "BANNER ==> *" to not reprint with a banner. 

 . In the Bundle Definition Attributes, there is: 

 . Attributes: 
 . Banner ===> ( xxxxxxxx , xxxxxxxx , xxxxxxxx ) 

 . Here you reference the model bundle, distrubution, and report banners. 
 . Using "*" in a field will suppress the banner. 

For JES banners, banner suppression may be able to take place in:

 . JES exit 1 can be used for banners for standard text reports. 
 . JES exit 23 can be used for banners for AFP reports.
