Hi all,

First time posting here, would really appreciate your help.
I'm fairly new to Mainframes so I'm having some troubles.

I want to write a JOB that reads some keys from an input file, runs FileManager to dump the IMS DB for each of these keys and look for some entries on them.
What's the best way to do this? I thought of using EZTRV to read that input file and then process it. But I can't call FileManager from EZTRV, can I? How about EZTRV submitting a JCL, is that possible?
Really stuck here, don't know what to do... Any advices?

You can write Easytrieve program that uses the input file and read IMS DB using DLI calls to read and dump your IMS DB segments.

Thanks for your reply!

But how do I do this?
I tried to look at the documentation for FILE, RECORD, RETRIEVE and DLI statements, but couldn't find nothing helpful enough.
Can anyone give me an example of how to use these statements? The syntax is very vague, (or I'm just pretty dumb =).

TIA,

Theo

There are two types of read of IMS db in the easytrieve, either give use JOB statement or use RETRIEVE.

If you are familiar with COBOL then you can read IMS db.
