Write data to multiple CICS printers in the same transaction

Postby rampilla88 » Thu Mar 20, 2014 11:05 pm

Hi,

I have a requirement to write same set of data (which is in different formats) to two different CICS virtual printer datasets. Am switching between two Printer IDs before each SEND TEXT command. But the switching is not happening properly/evenly. It is writing the data in almost 5:1 ratio among the printers. Am guessing, probably it could be because of the execution time difference between the CICS-Cobol code and Printer datasets write.

Could anyone help me on this please?

Hello and welcome to the forum,

It is writing the data in almost 5:1 ratio among the printers. Am guessing, probably it could be because of the execution time difference between the CICS-Cobol code and Printer datasets write
.
What does 5:1 mean?
What is "execution time difference"?
Hope this helps,
