VERIFIED SOLUTION i

Resolve why the MSRPSTM is only allowing 132 bytes of data using MailStream Plus 8.3.5 on IBMi

Product Feature: Installation / Upgrade
Operating System: iSeries


 

Issue

In the MailStream Plus(MSP) job on IBMi the REPORT USPSTMT sample job called @IVP@ creates the 3602 statement.  It is getting cut off at 132 bytes.  The file size should go out to 256 bytes.
 
When viewing the spooling file attributes of the MSRPSTM in Technical Support’s installation the Page size Width is 256:
 
Job  . . . . . . . . :   @@IVP@0001      File . . . . . . . . :   MSRPSTM   
  User . . . . . . . :     XXXXXXXX        Number . . . . . . :     000001
  Number . . . . . . :     006705        Creation date  . . . :   01/17/18
 
Page range to print:
  Starting page  . . . . . . . . . . . :   1                                
  Ending page  . . . . . . . . . . . . :   *END                             
Record length  . . . . . . . . . . . . :   256                              
Page size:

  Width  . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . :   256                          
 
But when viewing the spooling file attributes of the MSRPSTM in MSP job with the problem the Page size Width is 132:
 
Job  . . . . . . . . :   @@IVP@0001      File . . . . . . . . :   MSRPSTM   
  User . . . . . . . :     XXXXXXXX        Number . . . . . . :     000001
  Number . . . . . . :     006705        Creation date  . . . :   01/17/18
 
Page range to print:
  Starting page  . . . . . . . . . . . :   1                                
  Ending page  . . . . . . . . . . . . :   *END                             
Record length  . . . . . . . . . . . . :   256                              
Page size:
  Length . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . :   88                               
  Width  . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . :   132                          
 
How can this be fixed?

Cause

In the G1@@PMGS global library the  MSRPSTM     *File was found.
It only belongs in the G1MSPGMS – product library.

Resolution

UPDATED: February 13, 2018
Rename or remove the MSRPSTM     *File in the G1@@PGMS global library.
 
Now the MSRPSTM files has the correct Page size Width of 256.

---------------------------------------------
Note: on IBMi a user did have the correct 256 value, so the file was not getting cut off on the IBMi machine, but the statements were getting truncated when they were printed.  So he used this command to change the print font size that would be used when printing the file-
