Printer file overrides
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 is also possible to use overrides to direct data input or data that is sent to a device of a different type. Examples of items where overrides can be used are: Today’s Posts Member List Calendar. February 19th, Overriding a file is different from changing a file in that an override does not permanently change the attributes of a file.
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. However it generates 2 spool files in the same outq. 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.
Files are associated with an application program by the file names specified in the program when it is created. You can use overrides to change most, but not all, of the file attributes that are specified when the file is created. Override commands can be entered interactively from a display station or as part of a batch job. Been playing with this all afternoon, any help would be appreciated. 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?
It is all cleared up now, thanks again for the assistance. It is also possible to use overrides to direct data input or data that is sent to a device of a different type. Here is my code and the job log: Regardless of how they are issued, overrides remain in effect only for the job, program, or sign on session in which they are issued.
Here are my changes, please let me know what would cause 2 spool files to generate.
IBM i: Printer file overrides
This article discusses overriding printer files. Overrides have no effect on other jobs that might be running at the same time. The program must be able to accommodate the different characteristics of the two devices involved. Examples of items where overrides can be used are:.
The job ending codes and their meanings are as follows: I have tried the ovrscope parms, I checked in debug that it was overriding before my call to the program. You can ovrpgtf override functions for files using the following CL commands:. Overrides are used az400 temporarily specify a different printer file or temporarily change some of the attributes of a file. I have tried this as a straight call in case that was an issue.
You might want to prevent the person or program that calls your program from changing the printer file names or parameters you have specified.
Override is valid for the current callstack. For ovrrtf about the special considerations that are required for overrides that change the file type or redirect files, see the Distributed data management topic.
CL program override considerations If a CL program overrides a file and then calls a high-level language program, the override remains in effect for as40 high-level language program. Refer to the command descriptions for more information.
This is because the override in the CL program is deleted when the CL program ends. Their principal value is in allowing you to use general purpose programs in a wider variety of circumstances. This use as40 overrides requires somewhat more foresight than the override applications listed above.
In some cases, you can specify attributes in overrides that are not part of the original file definition. An override is only active for the current sign on session.
