CA 2E

Issue/Introduction

There is a need to have the ability to create files names in a CA 2E model that include an underscore "_" in the file name for CBL Files.

Underscore "_" is supported by CBL in the OS V7R4M0

MODEL Value YHLLVNM is set to *CBL which is not allowing any special characters in naming conventions.

If this is changed to *VNM from *CBL it will start allowing special characters in naming conventions.

Questions:

1.  Is it possible to have underscores in the CA 2E file names?

2.  Will the above recommendation affect any existing CA 2E functionality where previous files were created using YHLLVNM value of *CBL?

Environment

CA 2E 8.7

Resolution

The CA 2E Engineering team has consulted with IBM and has completed their analysis.

When MODEL Value YHLLVNM is set to *CBL, CA 2E does not allow any special characters in naming conventions.

If this is changed to *VNM from *CBL, CA 2E will start allowing special characters in naming conventions.

From our analysis, there will be no impact on the existing functionality if YHLLVNM is switched from *CBL to *VNM.

Please ensure to take a backup of the CA 2E model before switching YHLLVNM to *VNM from the *CBL.
