When determining the export width for a session:

  • If the user initiating the session has an assignment in the EXPORTWIDTH option for the user definition, the system uses the assigned export width definition.
  • If the user initiating the session does not have an assignment in the EXPORTWIDTH option in the user definition, the system uses the global default export width definition specified in the DBSControl Export Width Table ID field.
The session-level table ID is automatically saved in DBC.SessionTbl and is restored after a restart.
