The new database utility, List Definitions by Function, enables users to generate a report that shows the associated Job IDs (and File IDs if applicable) for the function selected.
Users can generate a report for the following items:

Users now have the ability to generate a report that lists the translation tables and the jobs that reference those translation tables.
Rule Variance Format for User Report and Freeform Report
When displaying the rule variance on the User Report and the Freeform Report, rule variance is displayed as a count when the print format is Date/Time/Date and Time. This is how rule variance is currently printed on the Control report.
For User Report, this change is applied to all report formats, report headers, detail line and total line wherever rule variance is applicable.
Improve Readability for Cross-Reference Report for Files
For alternate job, it is printed in primary job / alternate job sequence instead of alternate job / primary job sequence so that the primary job and all of its alternate jobs will be printed together.
