Increase RECSIZE to a higher value for version 3.6.02

The data is not able to be transferred for certain transmissions due to record size not large enough.

We are requesting to increase the RECSIZE (RUSIZE)value from 8989 to B9B9  so that our LOB customers can transfer files without a size issue.

What is your industry? Banking
How will this idea be used?

Our LOB clients will be able to send files to their external customers

    Thank you very much for opening this enhancement request with us. I have reviewed it thoroughly with my team and we believe it is both technically possible and would provide value to the broader C:D user base. We will accept this request as an uncommitted candidate and will look to add it to the roadmap moving forward. Thank you very much for using the enhancement request tool and if you uncover other ideas that we should consider please do let us know.

    To clarify,

    We are attempting to transfer a Format 2 ESDS file with increased limits, which CD HPNS does not support at this time. It currently supports only the original Format 1 and Format 2 implementations for structured files.


    We are requesting support for Key-Sequenced and Entry-Sequenced files with increased limits. Please have The product marketing/management team review this request.
