Is it possible to change the order of the Spool Output in Enterprise Server ?
Currently the output is in JOBN number order.
The ES_JES_SPOOL_ORDER environment variable can be used to control either ascending or descending JES output queue order, but is there any way to change the default of which column the ascending / descending applies.
The order in which the spool list is displayed when ESMAC is first opened.
The default spool order is ascending.
Setting this environment variable to 1 changes it to descending order - any other value displays it in ascending order.
From version 5.0 of our products, extra sorting capabilities have been added.
The change involves the introduction of a new environment variable : ES_JES_SORT_SPOOL_BY. This is used to decide which column is used to sort the spool records in casrdo41.
Accepted values are JOBNAME/SUBDATE/JOBUSER.
If anything else is specified, then the spool records are sorted based on the JOBNUMBER (JOBID)
This gives much improved flexibility around the sorting and display of spool files.
