Resolution

See below links to appropriate areas of CA View and CA Deliver documentation outlining special character support for Report ID's.

 

---- Security consideration ---- Initialization Parameters

      SECTRAN=

If you use external security (RACF, CA ACF2 Security, CA Top Secret Security) and the report id contains characters
from the extended special character set, you must set SECTRAN=YES. This setting causes the extended special
characters to be automatically translated to ‘_’ underscores before the RACROUTE security call.

Note: If the sysout-Id contains spaces, it must be enclosed in quotes (single or double). Any quotes in Report-id must be
entered as a pair of quotes because a non-paired quote will end the ID. For example, if the value were JIM’S REPORT it
must be entered as ‘JIM’’S REPORT’ or “JIM’S REPORT”.
