How do you insert a CR/LF in the LMSG portion using SNDDST?

I'm sending e-mails to customer service reps about loads that might be in jeopady of arriving late.
I'd like to segregate data in the LMSG by starting a new line for particular parts of the message.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


The LONGMSG() parm allows two forms of format control.

First, there are two control strings that may be direct ly inserted -- :/N and :/P. The [:/N] sequence results in a simple new-line character. The [:/P] results in a 'paragraph' break that should add a blank line also.

Second, you can insert FFTDCA format strings for whatever fancy formatting you need. I've never needed anything beyond new-line and paragraph, but I can dig up the old FFTDCA stuff if you really need it (I think).

Help text for the LONGMSG() parm discusses this.
