Hi friend

here are some answers for ur queries

Command Level Language Translator(Translator) produces 2 outputs the Translator Listing (SYSPRINT) and Temporary Dataset (SYSPUNCH).
SYSPUNCH is the input Dataset for the Compiler or Assembler.
DFHEIB copy book will be inserted into the Translated output automatically and EXEC CICS commands are commented, after the Comments, move Statement and some Calls for Command Interface Programs are inserted.

Use this bind option to force block fetch for ambiguous queries
DB2 uses two different methods to reduce the number of messages that are sent across the network when fetching data with a cursor

if we change the existing map ,we also need to change the corresponding application program & get the new copy using CEMT

we get the error as u cannot pass the
file name through a variable
OPEN mode file-name

mostly filestatus 35
we need to declare the file "infile" in
file-control & also in filesection
