 Why is my job not running in Easytrieve Compatibility Mode (R11.6-C)?



Release : 11.6



Your Job does show NEWFUNC Y mode.

FILE STATISTICS - CA Easytrieve 11.6 SP0-05/17/22-15.1

Since this proc does not have a

//EZOPTBL DD statement, Easytrieve will look for your EZTINI module.

Your Steplib has the following; Three Libraries

12 XXEZPLUS     EXEC  PGM=EZTPA00,REGION=900K                  
13 XXSTEPLIB    DD    DISP=SHR,DSN=datasetname1
14 XX                  DD    DISP=SHR,DSN=datasetname2  
15 XX                  DD    DISP=SHR,DSN=datasetname3            

Find the first occurrence of these 3 libraries of the EZTINI module.

Then do a find twice on "EZTINI: Following the second find is the Options Table you are using for this run.

Once you have found the Options File, run the following job to list the Options. Look for the NEWFUNC parameter. It should be "Y", since the compile, and File statistics show;

05/17/22 15.19.42                            CA Easytrieve 11.6    SP0

//*  List the current Options Table                          
//LOADDEF EXEC PGM=ETOPLOAD                                  
//STEPLIB  DD  DSN=XXXXXX.EZTRVEB6.CBAALOAD,    PDS load for the Options file 
//             DISP=SHR                                      
//SYSPRINT DD  SYSOUT=*                                      
//OUTPUT   DD  SYSOUT=*                                      
//SYSUT2   DD  DUMMY                                         
//EZOPTBL  DD  DSN=XXXX.CERMAK.EZOPTBL,         Options file you found                  
//             DISP=SHR                         
//SYSIN    DD  *                                

Additional Information

If your Options File setting of NEWFUNC is Y, and you want to run in Compatibility mode, check the other libraries in the STEPLIB concatenation .Then check for their EZTINI module Options File name, and list their settings.

Be sure the the Library that has the EZTINI Options File of N, is concatenated first in the STEPLIB.
