Function
Directs Model 204 output to a specified sequential data set rather than to the normal output device

Syntax

USE outputname

Where outputname is in the form OUTxxxxx, referring to the run's data definition statement in the z/OS or z/VSE JCL, or to the FILEDEF statement in the CMS EXEC. Output name can also be the name of a DEFINE DATASET definition.

Example

USE OUTPRINT USE OUT1

Usage notes

When output from Model 204, such as a SOUL request or a DISPLAY command, is being sent to a data set, the USE command must be specified before any commands that produce output to that data set are executed.

If you are using an external security interface, authorization to open sequential data sets is validated during execution of the command. For more information, refer to Security interfaces.
