Reply with quote

Hello!

Can anyone walk me thru the steps to change the length of an IMS DB?
As far as I understand:
a)Change the DBD with the new length
b)Recompile all PSBs accessing that DB
c)Create ACBs (?)
d)Change the IO-area used by the cobol programs to access the DB
e)Recompile all the cobol programs using that DB (to pick up the changed IO area)

I am not sure if I have to perform the steps b and c.

Would be nice if anyone could throw some light on this.

Hi naive,

we need to recompile the PSB's too i feel. this is mandate, if there happens to be change in key of segments.

Can you please throw some light on ACB?


thanks in advance,

Gowtham

Ummm I am not sure about the ACBs either. I know that they are made from a combination of the PSB and the DBD, and that usually they are required to run online IMS programs.
Other than that I am not at all sure about them.

And oh .. there is no change in the Key, only an increase in length of the DB due to increase in length of some nonkey fields.
