Show Summary Details

The following procedure prints country tables on the basis of partner country data and recalculates area totals.1 Partner country data are selected by choosing the “Part B” option on screen No. 4, and the recalculation of an area total is selected on screen No. 5.

Command lists, or c-lists, are on-line interactive selection menus that set up JCLs (job control language) for submission to the system. C-lists are a sequence of TSO (time sharing option) commands arranged to perform specific tasks. An entire c-list is called a command procedure which has many of the same capabilities as the online system. The Direction of Trade (DOT) c-lists and jobs are shown in the following flow chart.

Note: XXXXXX will be the user’s TSOID.

START-UP

Each job is set up for a run by invoking (executing) the c-list named 'DOTMENU'. To invoke this c-list, follow normal TSO LOGON procedures. When the ISPF/PFS PRIMARY OPTION MENU is shown, choose Option 6. The resulting screen will look like this:

1 At the cursor prompt, type:

EX 'EIS.PROD.USER.CLIST(DOTMENU)'.

The command to invoke the c-list may be typed in caps or small letters. The screen should look like this:

You are now in the DOTS main menu c-list.

2

Type the number of your selection; then press Enter. Option 0 will return you to the TSO command processor. Option 2 will return you to the Direction of Trade main menu. The only option available at the present time is option 1—DOTS Set Prints. Type 1 at the prompt and press Enter.

You will now be prompted for information specific to your run. Following are the prompts for the information you will provide and the correct response information.

3

Type a country code at the prompt and press enter. (Country code must be numeric).

4

Type your selection number at the prompt and press enter.

5

Type Y for yes and press enter or type N for no and press enter.

6

Type 0, 1, or 2 and press enter.

(CAUTION: you may only make one selection.)

7

Type 1 or 2 and press enter.

8

Type the dates you want and press enter. Date formats will not be checked for syntax.

9

Type Y for yes and press enter if you want the report to be sent to the printer of your choice. If you type Y, you will be prompted for the name of the printer (see step 10).

Type N for no and press enter if you want the report to be sent to printer STA1. You will not be prompted for the printer name if you choose no. You will skip step 10. You must manually release your prints in I0F if this option is chosen.

10

Type the name of the printer and press enter.

11

Option 0 will return you to the DOTS main menu without saving any of the information you have entered. This option cancels the set print.

Option 1 allows you to save the set print job in your user library. You must manually submit the job at a later time. In order to use this option you must have an established library named 'XXXXXX.PROG.CNTL' where XXXXXX is your user-id. See step 12 (next) for instructions for this option.

Option 2 submits the set print to be run immediately. See step 13 (next) for instructions for this option.

12 To save your job for later, type 1 and press enter. The following messages will appear:

Wait until the above messages have all displayed. Do not press any keys until you see '***'; then press enter. You will see the following:

Wait until the above messages have all displayed. Do not press any keys until you see '***'; then press enter. The job will be saved in the library indicated and you will be returned to the DOTS main menu.

13 To execute the job without saving, type 2 and press enter.

The following messages will appear:

Wait until the above messages have all displayed. Do not press any keys until you see '***'; then press enter. The job will automatically be submitted. You may view your job in IOF.

As indicated in section 5.2.2, EIS option 14.2 also prints partner country tables; however, area totals are not recalculated and therefore may not add up to individual country data.
