Printway Missing LineFeed

Postby bitandbyte » Wed Oct 24, 2012 3:06 pm

Hello to all in this board :-)

We recently ran into a problem with PRINTWAY. It seems like that when upgrading from z/OS 1.11 to z/OS 1.13 that "Carriage Returns/LineFeed" which should be
x"0D0A" are now converted to "0DDA"...which leads to the effect that everything is printed in one line because of the missing or wrong "Linefeed"

Now I am a bit stuck where to go from there now..because my knowledge of PRINTWAY is veeeery basic...I already searched IBM but could not find any hint.
As far as I know we are running PRINTWAY in Basic Mode...any clues or hints what I could check before calling IBM?
Thanlks alot and best regards,
Jo

I am not a printway expert but for such scenario
for <any product> involved the general approach would be

it worked as needed under <the previous version/release/whatever>
does not work under <the new version/release/whatever>

if the <any product> manuals do not tell anything about new/changed parameters
or about migration/upgrade concerns

no reason to waste time investigating Yourself
get in touch as soon as You can with IBM support
cheers

When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort
