EJ - Page Eject

This Natural profile and session parameter is used to specify whether a page eject is to be performed as a result of a logical page break, a break between program input and output, and the "normal end" message.

Possible settings ON A page eject is performed.
OFF No page eject is performed.

This setting may be used to save paper during test runs where page ejects are not needed.

Default setting ON
Dynamic specification yes
Specification within session yes Applicable statement: SET GLOBALS Parameter is evaluated at runtime.
Applicable command: GLOBALS Parameter may be specified dynamically with the GLOBALS system command.
Application programming interface USR1005N See SYSEXT - Natural Application Programming Interfaces in the Utilities documentation.


  1. Within a Natural session, the profile parameter EJ can be overridden by the session parameter EJ.
  2. The EJ setting can in turn be overridden by an EJECT statement.
  3. This parameter only applies to the first report (Report 0). For additional reports, the statement EJECT with report specification (rep) has to be used.
  4. Under Natural Security, the setting of this parameter can be overridden by the Session Parameters option of the Library Profile.
The profile parameter EJ has a slightly different meaning when specified for a Natural session under CICS in batch mode (for example, TTYPE=ASYL or TTYPE=BTCH). For details, see Asynchronous Natural Processing under CICS in the TP Monitor Interfaces documentation.
