Issue/Introduction

 

Problem:

CA Spool files does not print correctly, lines feeds are missing, when VTAM Transparency characters x'35' are found. 

 

Symptoms

Some particular files are having problems like:

  • All data in records are not being translated correctly.
  • Line feeds are missing.

 

Environment:
CA Spool

 

Cause:

Symptoms above might be caused by files records, which content looks like binary data, contains x'35' characters. When CA Spool finds them they are treated as VTAM Transparency characters and translation of the data that follows for nn bytes stops (where nn is the character that is found right after the x'35' character).

  

Resolution:

To make the VTAM Transparency character x'35' be treated as normal data you need to use print driver option 'X' in the DEFNODE/NODE statement via the TCPDRIV= keyword.
