Hi all,

I have got a problem.

Program A is calling another program B. Program B is accessing database and it is taking so much time and it is not returning any thing to calling program.

Can we write a cobol program such that the main program abends if the program B is not returning anything even after 5 mins?

Sridhar kappa.

Hi !

I think that would not solve the problem. Better have a nearer look at your programm-b. Do an interaktive trace an correct the programm, because i think it's not probably working.

Regards, UmeySan

But we have around 1 million records and everytime we cannot decide what time exactly we need to code in JCL. If we code more time, it will take more time if we have 1000 such records in it...

Kapper,

You don't exactly say what pgmB is attempting, but database access should not take that kind of time. Umeysam is correct. Either you are making an inappropriate DB request or something is wrong w/pgmB.
