A standard output file is an output file that is user-defined as the SYSPRINT file. It executes automatically in batch mode when BTEQ is invoked. If a standard output file is not specified, or if the terminal or workstation is defined as the SYSPRINT file, BTEQ displays all output reports and messages on the terminal or workstation screen.
To specify an output file do one of the following:
|Mainframe-attached||Use either the BTEQ TDSBTEQ JCL procedure or a DD statement in a standard JCL file to specify the output file as the SYSPRINT file before invoking BTEQ.|
|Workstation-attached||Use the > or >> character to specify an output file when BTEQ is invoked.|
