Logical Record Length (LRECL)

Enter the logical record length to be used (host record byte count) in the LRECL text box. If Variable and Undefined Mode are specified as the record format, the logical record length is the maximum record length within a file. The maximum value is 32767.

The record length of a file sent from a workstation to the host system might exceed the logical record length specified here. If so, the host file transfer program divides the file by the logical record length.

To send a file containing long records to the host system, specify a sufficiently long logical record length.

Because the record length of a workstation file exceeds the logical record length, a message does not appear normally if each record is divided. To display a message, add the following specification to the [Transfer] item of the workstation profile:
