Examples of items where overrides can be used are:. However it generates 2 spool files in the same outq. You can override these file names or attributes of a specified file when you compile a program or run a program.
If you perform the override with the default override scope, the override is only valid within the same activation group. Override is valid for the current callstack. It is also possible to use overrides to direct data input or data that is sent to a device of a different type.
In some cases, you can specify attributes in overrides that are not part of the original file definition. You can process override functions for files using the following CL commands:. Overrides are used to temporarily specify a different printer file or temporarily change some of the attributes of a file.
Overrides can be called from different levels programs calling another program. Overrides are particularly useful for making minor changes to the way a pvrprtf functions or for selecting the data ovprrtf which it operates, without having to recompile the program.
IBM i: Printer file overrides
However, if a high-level language program calls a CL program that overrides a file, the override is deleted automatically when control returns to the high-level language program. For information about the ovfprtf considerations that are required for overrides that change the file type or redirect files, see the Distributed data management topic. You can use overrides to change most, but not all, of the file attributes that are specified when the file is created.
Today’s Posts Member List Calendar. You can process zs400 functions for files using the following CL commands: This is because the override in the CL program is deleted when the CL program ends.
I have tried the ovrscope parms, I checked in debug that it was overriding before my call to the program.
If a CL program overrides a file and then calls a high-level language program, the override remains in effect for the high-level language program. Login or Sign Up. February 19th, This use of overrides requires somewhat more foresight than the override applications listed above.
Changing the name of the file to be processed Indicating whether output is to be spooled Changing printer characteristics such as lines per qs400 and number of copies It is also possible to use overrides to direct data input or data that is sent to a device of a different type. For example, sending data that is intended for a diskette to a printer instead.
Overriding a file is different from changing a file in that an override does not permanently change the attributes of a file.
The override command tells the system which file to open and what its file attributes are. The program must be able to accommodate the different characteristics of the two devices involved.
The job ended after 1 routing steps with a secondary ending code ae400 0.
Overrides have no effect on other jobs that might be running at the same time. Their a4s00 value is in allowing you to use general purpose programs in a wider variety of circumstances. I see my regular outq of SSPRT is designated in the call, but shouldn’t the override do it’s job and point the output elsewhere?
