The operation to be performed is chosen as a parameter to the Batch-Process option.
If the data file is being converted between EBCDIC and ANSI and the records contain non-text data items, a record layout description is required to define the data items requiring conversion and those to be left unconverted (for example, binary values). The record layouts are created with the Record Layout Editor and stored in files with an .str file extension. For more information on how to create a record layout file, see the topic To create a record layout file.
This parameter is not used by DFCONV.
