BJTDATA – UBU Flat File
When UBU is running in Extract mode, BJTDATA is the flat file output listing. When edited and then used as input to UBU in Modify mode, this flat file allows users to manipulate Output Manager Db2® data and carry changes in the data to the Output Manager database.
The output data set must have the following characteristics:
- Organization: PS
- Record format: VB (recommended) or FB
- Record length: 32756
Use modification actions and block actions to make changes to the BJTDATA file. Modification actions, also known as line actions, take precedence over block actions. If neither a line action nor a block action is specified for an object, a 'preferred action' can be used, if specified in the SYSIN option PREFERRED_ACTION. If PREFERRED_ACTION(NONE) is specified and neither a line action nor a block action is specified for an object, no action will be performed on that object.
For more information, see sample BJTDATA files.
Note: When using the Universal Batch Utility (UBU) for extracting and modifying data, it is recommended to allocate the BJTDATA DD name as DCB=(RECFM=VB,LRECL=32756,BLKSIZE=32760). Refer to SBJTSAMP member BJTUUBU.
