CA XCOM Data Transport CA XCOM Data Transport - z/OS


With XCOM r11.5 we introduced a batch TYPE=HISTORY job that you can use to generate history reports with CA Easytrieve. We have enhanced this feature in our XCOM for z/OS r12.0 version. 


Release: CA Easytrieve Report Generator

CA XCOM Data Transport for z/OS 11.5, 11.6, 12.0

Component: xcmvs


This sample JCL has a XCOMJOB TYPE=HISTORY call to get history information and save it to the HISTDD. The HISTDD is then passed to a sample CA Easytrieve report that generates a report similar to the CA XCOM ISPF operator display. 

 In our CBXGJCL library there is a job called XCOMJOBH. That is a sample TYPE=HISTORY job. For a description of these parameters, see SYSIN01 Parameters Supported by FILETYPE=HISTORY.  

You can specify OTYPE=ALL or uncomment and select specific parameters. 


 1) Review the job and modify it according to the instructions in the comments. 

 2) You can use either the full release of CA Easytrieve or the Common Component version of Easytrieve. You just need to know what you have installed.   Please note that With Common Services 14.1, the Easytrieve Product is now a separate installation.  Please see "IEC130I EZOPTBL DD STATEMENT MISSING" error message for details about this. Also please be sure to put on all the Easytrieve maintenance. 

 3) Run the job and check the output you receive. 

Additional Information

Please refer to the XCOM online documentation, Section Batch History Requests, for the new parameters that were added at r12.0 to allow for selection of transfers that are based on status.
