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.

Thanks,

Phil

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.
