Record Format

Valid only for VM/CMS and MVS/TSO when APPEND is not specified for file transmission. You can select any of the following:
  • Default
  • Fixed (fixed length)
  • Variable (variable length)
  • Undefined (undefined mode for MVS/TSO only)
If you select the Default value, the record format is selected automatically by the host system.

Specifying Variable for VM file transfer enables host disk space to be used efficiently.
