The following rules apply to IBM® Connect:Direct® commands and options in the DGADBATC job stream.
- The first command in the job stream must be a SIGNON command.
- The maximum command string length is 4,096 bytes. Each new IBM Connect:Direct command in the job stream
must start on a separate line. You can split a command across more than one line by using the
continuation mark. However, the first word or string of the next command must start on a new line as
shown in the following

- All IBM Connect:Direct commands must start in column 2. Any data in column 1 is considered a label.
