The default maximum size is there to protect your system against runaway
programs filling up your hard disk. Usually there are not many reports that
can justify exceeding this size. When the CPA4072 comes up I find it's
usually best to check what's going on before blindly extending the file.
Often the user will say, "Oh, I didn't really mean to do that." or "But I
was only expecting 3 pages."

I find the best thing to do is to identify those few large reports that are
erally required and change the maximum with CHGPRTF to save you adding
OVRPRTF to your CL. If you need to re-create the file at a later date you
need to remember either to compile it with the new maximum or rerun the
CHGPRTF afterwards.
