Issue/Introduction

We want to duplicate a power list via 

// EXEC CAPRUTL0,SIZE=100K                                       

INPUT  VEJT0174,CCLASS=B,FCB=$$BFCB00,ENDISP=(DISP=L,CLASS=B)    

REPORT VE174, -                                                  

             SELECT=ALL, -                                       

LST='CLASS=B,DISP=K,DEST=(*,FTPCSV)'                             

/*                                                               

and the new list (VE174) has more lines than the original. (empty lines). 
The output file contains (in lines 75, 148, 221, 294,367, 440) empty lines, and the following lines
have a "1" in column 1.

Resolution

when CAPRUTL0 detects a logical end of page (as defined in the FCB) it will insert a control character to force a page skip. You can prevent this from happening by setting on MODON 31. This option will then be in force for all CAPRUTL0 jobs.
