Default: True
Range: True or False

Tracks variable-format data sets that contain links; however, the links themselves are not tracked. When a record is created in a variable-format data set, links are set to null. If the application assigns the links to point to other records, the client database will not contain these new link values until the variable-format data set is recloned. This parameter is selected, by default.

When this parameter is unselected, variable-format data sets are set to mode 11 after initial cloning and not updated.
