TAPE

If you specify ON TAPE, the Span Accessory names the tapes depending on the format (directory/= or filename) that you enter. Tape names can be only two nodes long, so the Span Accessory resolves them as follows:

directory/=

If the format is directory/=, the Span Accessory names each tape as follows:

last_node_of_the_directory/datasetname

For example, if you enter EXTRACTS A/B/C/= ON TAPE, the resulting tapes would be named as follows:

C/datasetname

If the data set has variable formats, the tape is named for each variable format (except 0) as follows:

datasetname/variable_format_number

filename

If the format is filename, the Span Accessory names each tape with the last two nodes of the file title, as follows:

second_to_last_node/last_node

For example, if you enter EXTRACTS D/E/F ON TAPE, the resulting, single tape would be named as follows:

E/F
