Re: multiple ovrprtf commands



fixed

Jim,

I wrote a similar CL here a few years ago. In my case I tested each parameter to see if there was anything there; if not I used CHGVAR to set it to our default. Then just issued OVRPRTF once. Issuing an OVRPRTF resets the override's parameters, which is what you are experiencing.

Short example:

IF COND(&COPIES *EQ 0) THEN(DO) CHGVAR VAR(&COPIES) VALUE(1) ENDDO IF COND(&OVRSCOPE *EQ ' ') THEN(DO) CHGVAR VAR(&OVRSCOPE) VALUE('*JOB ') ENDDO OVRPRTF FILE(&FILE) TOFILE(*FILE) +
DEV(&DEV) PAGESIZE(&LENGTH &WIDTH) +
LPI(&LPI) CPI(&CPI) OVRFLW(&OVRFLW) +
PAGRTT(&PAGRTT) REDUCE(&REDUCE) +
PRTTXT(&PRTTXT) SPOOL(&SPOOL) +
FORMTYPE(&FORMTYPE) COPIES(&COPIES) +
HOLD(&HOLD) SAVE(&SAVE) +
SPLFNAME(&SPLFNAME) OVRSCOPE(&OVRSCOPE)

I am trying to create a generic jovrprtf cl program to be called by rpg
programs.
I want it to be able to test for which parameters to override and to issue
an ovrprtf command for each one that needs to be changed.
It seems that each time I issue an ovrprtf command it replaces the
previous overrides.
Am I missing something?
