The  Convert   Journal   Receiver  Attributes   command  converts   the
information  from DSPJRNRCVA  about a  single receiver  to a  data base
file.  A typical command would be entered as:

         CVTJRNRCVA   JRNRCV(xxxx) OUTLIB(yyyy)

The  file  output  is  named  JRNRCVAP and  is  placed  in  the library

Additional length fields

Since the  journal support  was enhanced to  allow a  larger number  of
entries,  size of  entry, size  of receiver  etc, the  original outfile
fields  were not large  enough in several  cases.  This  was handled by
adding additional fields such as for the 'Maximum entry length':

            JCMXLN    5/0     Original field
            JCMXL2   15/0     New field

The original fields will  continue to have valid  data as long as  they
are large enough.  If not they will be set to 0.

For example, if  the max length is  98,000 both JCMXLN and  JCMXL2 will
contain the  same value.  If  more than 5 digits  exist, JCMXLN will be
set to 0.

Comparison with CVTJRNA TAA Tool command

The CVTJRNA command outputs three data  base files including a file  of
the receivers  associated  with a  specific journal.   The  information
comes  from the  WRKJRNA command.    The receiver  information includes
the basic information, the status and the attach date.

The  CVTJRNRCVA  command  uses the  information  from  DSPJRNRCVA which
includes the same  information as from  CVTJRNA, but also includes  the
number of entries and the starting sequence number.

CVTJRNRCVA  operates on  only  a  single receiver.    Because of  this,
CVTJRNRCVA  is normally used  in conjunction with  the CVTJRNA command.

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   JRNRCV        The qualified  journal  receiver name  to  be  output.
                 The library defaults to *LIBL.

   OUTLIB        The  library  in  which  the  file  JRNRCVAP  will  be
                 placed.   The default is *LIBL.   If the JRNRCVAP file
                 does not already exist,  a library must be  specified.

   OUTMBR        The member of  the JRNRCVAP file  to be used.   If the
                 member does  not exist, it  is added.   The default is

   REPLACE       A  *YES/*NO  value for  whether  the member  should be
                 cleared before writing records  into it.  The  default
                 is *YES.

File format

The file name that is output is JRNRCVAP.

The model file used is TAAJRNEP with a format name of JRNRCVAR.
