The spooled output is generated when a value of *PRINT is specified on the Output parameter. The spooled output consists of four main sections—the input or header section, the object selection list section, the differences section, and the summary section.

First, the header section of the spooled report includes all of the input values specified on the command, including the data group value (DGDFN), comparison level (CMPLVL), report type (RPTTYPE), attributes to compare (CMPATR), actual attributes compared, number of files, objects, IFS objects or DLOs compared, and number of detected differences. It also provides a legend that provides a description of special values used throughout the report.

The second section of the report is the object selection list. This section lists all of the object selection entries specified on the comparison command. Similar to the header section, it provides details on the input values specified on the command.

The detail section is the third section of the report, and provides details on the objects and attributes compared. The level of detail in this section is determined by the report type specified on the command. A report type value of *ALL will list all objects compared, and will begin with a summary status that indicates whether or not differences were detected. The summary row indicates the overall status of the object compared. Following the summary row, each attribute compared is listed—along with the status of the attribute and the attribute value. In the event the attribute compared is an indicator, a special value of *INDONLY will be displayed in the value columns.

A comparison level value of *DIF will list details only for those objects with detected attribute differences. A value of *SUMMARY will not include the detail section for any object.

The fourth section of the report is the summary, which provides a one row summary for each object compared. Each row includes an indicator that indicates whether or not attribute differences were detected.
