The records for all batches of Job J157 are to be output to a single tape. The command string for outputting Job “J157” has been entered in super, J157. This section also includes the instructions for preparing and writing the header and trailer labels required in the output command string and the subsequent purging of the data written to tape.
Prepare header label as follows:
Select Mode “E” and key the Job name “HDR157”, a comma (,), the digit 1 (one) as the batch number, and then press the skip key.
Key the information for the header label as the prompts appear on the screen. These prompts are:

Reel No. 001 - This is constant.
DTE/MMYY: Enter the current month and year, e.g., MM = 01-12 as appropriate; YY = two low order positions of year.
The header label is now complete.
Execute the output command string as follows:
Select Mode F and key the job name SUPER, a comma (,), and the batch identifier “J157.” Then depress the skip key twice. This will put you at record number 1.
At Record No. “3” change the batch numbers shown in the $Job J157 command to correspond with the batch numbers that are to be output. Record Back ( ) to Record No. “1.”

Key the batch numbers to be purged into the $JOB 157 command.
