display the correct values for Save History 'Mark for
duplication' and 'Duplicated item' fields.
35. In V6R1 and above, you can now get a retention section on
the PRTRPTBRM command with a TYPE of *CTLGRPSTAT and a CTLGRP
parameter not equal to *NONE. The retention section will start
on a new page and have *RETENTION to start the section with
*FULL and *INCR in the  Start and End Date columns. Under this
will be all the control groups that are in the report and their
current retention for full and incremental saves.
To enable this, the user must create this data area once per
job:
CRTDTAARA DTAARA(QTEMP/Q1ARPTRETN) TYPE(*CHAR)
