is it possible to skip a section trailer on next page?

Postby lostcontinent » Tue Aug 02, 2011 4:57 pm

hi to all,
I want to create a report with headers/trailers for each section so that i get an additional page for each section trailer (so the trailer is skipped to the next page). Is this possible?
Example:

<report header page>
.<section header page>
..<data pages(s)>
.<section trailer page>
.<section header page>
..<data page(s)>
.<section trailer page>
.<section header page>
..<data page(s)>
.<section trailer page>
<report trailer page>

Or do I have to put out additional 'carriage control characters' and then remove the 'original' carriage control characters in another sort step?

thanks a lot in advance,
frank

Lostcontinent,

Do you just need the trailer to be on a new page ?

Did you try SKIP=P on the sections statement? It would be helpful if you had shown a sample output along with the DCB properties of the input file.

hi skolusu,
according to the manual, SKIP=P is for sections, and this works as it should (the header is skipped to the next page).
I want the trailer also being skipped to the next page
