keep track of how many rows (record is term that relates to files/ row is the term for DB2) you process during the run and insure this counter/place-marker is available each time your program runs.

This is restart philosophy.

you have not mentioned the activity/process you are executing.

It can become complicated based on:
  • if you update the rows and have no commit, then you need to start at the beginning after an ABEND. (do not confuse ABEND with a non-zero SQLCODE, they are not the same.)
  • if you have a commit interval, your counter would be based on the point of last commit
  • if you have an output file, you may or may not need to use OPEN output extend when you recognize a restart process
  • normally, each shop has some type of 'RESTART' table which contains indicators as to counts, whether this is restart or fresh start


Basically, you need an external (from the program - like restart table) source to tell your program if it is a fresh start or a restart. you need to have logic to start your db2 process at the proper place as well as positioning any output vsam/qsam files.

lot depends on if this is batch or online. what I have described is a batch restart process.
