TAA Tools

The Check  TAA Outfiles  command checks  for any  existing TAA  outfile
names  to determine if  the level ID  is the same  as that used  by the
current   tool.    The  command  is  run  automatically  when  the  TAA
Productivity Tools  are installed  and may  also  be run  at any  time.
The output listing  describes outfiles that may need  to be deleted for
successful tool use.

If  the existing  file is  deleted, in most  cases re-running  the tool
will create the file with the proper format.

A typical command would be:


The listing describes two types of flags.

  **   %1 - The  listing would describe  the file names  that are  used
       for TAA  outfiles that have  a different  level ID as  the model
       file  in  the  current  TAA  version.    These files  should  be
       considered for deletion as they may impact TAA tool usage.

       For many  TAA tools,  deleting the  existing file  and  allowing
       the TAA  tool that  creates the  outfile to  re-create the  file
       will avoid problems.

  **   %2 -  These files have permanent data.   There would normally be
       a  RFMxxx command associated with the  tool to reformat the file
       before it may be used.

CHKTAAOUTF escape messages you can monitor for

None.  Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.

CHKTAAOUTF Command parameters                         *CMD

   TAAOUTF       The TAA outfile to  be checked.  The default  is *ALL.

                 A  specific TAA  outfile  such as  OUTQP (outfile  for
                 CVTOUTQ)  may  be  specified.   To  determine  the TAA
                 outfile name,  use  DSPOUTFILE  and  specify  the  TAA
                 command name.

   OUTPUT        How  to output  the  results.   *  is  the default  to
                 display  the spooled  file if  the command  is entered
                 interactively.  The spooled  file is deleted after  it
                 is displayed.

                 If  the command  is  entered  in  batch or  *PRINT  is
                 specified,  the spooled file  is output  and retained.
