UCS parameter

z/OS MVS JCL Reference

Parameter type

Keyword, optional


Use the UCS (universal character set) parameter to identify:
  • The UCS image JES is to use in printing this sysout data set.
  • A print train (print chain or print band) JES is to use in printing this sysout data set on an impact printer.
  • A font for this sysout data set printed on an AFP printer in a JES2 system. In this use, the UCS parameter acts like a CHARS parameter.

The UCS image specifies the special character set to be used. JES loads the image into the printer’s buffer. The UCS image is stored in SYS1.IMAGELIB. IBM provides the special character set codes in Table 1.


For more information on the UCS parameter, see z/OS DFSMSdfp Advanced Services.
