Issue/Introduction

In a comment string, in this case an email address, a Deliver banner page contained text "[email protected]".

The banner output appeared as follows:

ABCD  EEEHIJK  L              M         M  N       N
            E               L              MM   MM  NN    N
            E               L              M M M M  N N   N
            EEE          L              M   M   M  N  N  N
            E               L              M         M  N   N N
            E               L              M         M  N    NN
            EEE          LLLLLLL  M         M  N      N

Environment

Release : 14.0

Component : CA Deliver

Cause

The underscore character (_) in the banner text (email address) was causing a shift in letter types from standard letters to 7x7 block letters. 

Resolution

To negate the occurrence of the underscore character in a banner comment, you can use the following procedure:

. Locate the banner source.
. . In Deliver, at the Primary panel, use command "disp b" to list the banners in the database.
. . Review the banner sources, to identify the banner.

. Go to the banner source in the Deliver banner library (dlvr_hlq.CVDED133).

. Edit the banner source, to the following:

/BEGSEP
/ATTR &%!&

. Run RMODBASE BLOAD:

//XXXXXXXX JOB ...
//RMODBASE EXEC PGM=RMODBASE,PARM='DLVR_HLQ' <=== MODIFY DB NAME
//STEPLIB DD DISP=SHR,DSN=DLVR.CVDELOAD <=== MODIFY, IF USED
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//RMOBLIB DD DISP=SHR,DSN=DLVR_HLQ.CVDED133
//SYSIN DD *
BLOAD
