Usage Guidelines

  • Use this attribute to request conversion for line-data jobs sent to a PSF actual destination.
  • If you do not specify a value for this attribute, the corresponding actual destination attribute controls conversion. The default value for the actual destination attribute is true.
    Note: The corresponding document attribute, convert-to-ebcdic, defaults to no value. Specify true only if you want to convert the content of the document from ASCII to EBCDIC. Validation only fails if you set convert-to-ebcdic to true and either this logical destination value or the actual destination attribute value is false.
  • InfoPrint compares the document attribute convert-to-ebcdic to this attribute for job validation.
  • You can use this attribute to restrict use of this logical destination.
