Did you know that sample reports using CA Easytrieve are distributed with the CA SYSVIEW product? CA Easytrieve Common Services is released as a part of CA Common Services. This reporting feature provides the versatility to create and produce user-defined reports from various types of input files and popular databases.
Execute the sample reports included in CA SYSVIEW by using the JCL provided in the SYSVIEW hlq.CNM4ZSAM data set. The member EZREPORT contains the JCL to run a report. You can find additional sample JCL in the "Create Reports Using the CA Easytrieve Reporting Service" section of the CA SYSVIEW User Guide.
