CL program ovrptf considerations 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. Here is my code and the job log: The job ended after 1 routing steps with a secondary ending code of 0. The override command tells the system which file to open and what its file attributes are.
The system supplies three override functions: I have tried this as a straight call in case that was an issue. I have tried the ovrscope parms, I checked in debug that as40 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. This article discusses overriding printer files. It is a new program off an existing menu.
Examples of items where overrides can be used are:. It is also possible to use overrides to direct data input or data that is sent to a device of a different type.
IBM i: Example: Apply OVRPRTF with *PRTF
You might want to prevent the person or program that calls your program from changing the printer file names or as00 you have specified. Their principal value is in allowing you to use general purpose ovtprtf in a wider variety of circumstances.
For example, if you override the number of copies specified in a printer file by requesting six copies instead of two, the file description for the printer file still specifies two copies, but six copies are printed.
Changing the name of the file to be processed Indicating whether output is to be spooled Changing printer characteristics such as lines per inch and number of copies It ovrprt 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.
You can override these file names or attributes of a specified file when you compile a program or run a program.
This use of overrides requires somewhat more foresight than ovtprtf override applications listed above. 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?
Override commands can be entered interactively from a display station or as part of a batch job. It is all cleared up now, thanks again for the assistance.
Example: Apply OVRPRTF with *PRTF
Overrides can be called from different levels programs calling another program. The job ending codes and their meanings are as follows: Examples of items where overrides can be used are: However it generates 2 spool files in the same outq.
Override is valid for the current callstack. February 19th, Overrides have no effect on other jobs that might be running at the same time. Overrides are particularly useful for making minor changes to the way a program functions or for selecting the data on which it operates, without having to recompile the program. Overriding a file is different from changing a file in that an override does not permanently change the attributes of a file.
Here are my changes, please let ovrpftf know what would cause 2 spool files to generate. Printer file overrides Overriding files printer files, display files, diskette files, database files, and tape files can be done by commands, from CL programs, or ovrprtd high-level language programs.
Ss400 you perform the override with the default override scope, the override is only valid within the same activation group.

Refer to the command descriptions ocrprtf more information. For more information, see the Work management topic collection in the Systems management category in the IBM i Information Center, http: Overriding files ofrprtf files, display files, diskette files, database files, and tape files can be done by commands, from CL programs, or from high-level language programs.
Regardless of how they are issued, overrides remain in effect only for the job, program, or sign on session in which they are issued.
