    Hello Trevor,

     

    Just to provide some clarification, as per Knowledge Document TEC1546374 , there is a 256 character limit on reports and sysout data that is sent into Dispatch's online viewing. The way the CA Dispatch code is currently designed, this same 256 character limit would also be imposed when the report is viewed through the CA Web Viewer product, and/or if the report data were to be downloaded to a users PC or other network location using the RTC component.

     

    The 256 character limit is not imposed by CA Dispatch when PRINTING report or sysout data . Nor is it imposed upon CA Dispatch ARCHIVING data, or when reprinting report or sysout data from an archived tape.

     

    As an FYI... If the purpose of this community "question/discussion" post is to request that the CA Dispatch code be ENHANCED or changed to support an increased character limit on reports being sent into online viewing, then what you would want to do is open an "IDEA" on the communities site rather than a question or a discussion.

     

    Please consider making your request on this same communities site as an IDEA, so that our IDEA review committee will followup with you on your request. Thanks Trevor!

     

    Take care,

    Scott London
