  • FBA.
    Blocked fixed-length records with ANSI control characters.
  • FU.
    Undefined length records.

  • VBA.
    Blocked variable-length records with ANSI control characters.
  • VU.
    Undefined length records.
Default is F.
  • If you specify either FU and VU for the RECFM value, PowerExchange uses RECFM=U in the dynamic allocation request.
  • If you omit both the LRECL and RECFM statements, PowerExchange uses 32752 for the LRECL value and VB for the RECFM value when allocating data sets.
