1.) No - you don't. IMD DC cannot access physical sequential files. They are not defined to the IMS DC regions.

2.) In your MFS, you will see your DC transaction which is defined in an ACB gen.

It is not a DC program. Is it a functioning program? Does your installation run BMP?

DC (MPP - message processing programs) do not and cannot have physical sequential files - they can only access IMS databases.

Take a look at the PSB. Also, there should be a file cross reference. Or you can search the JCL libraries for those file names and the name of your program. Look at the execute statement - it will tell you if it is BMP.

Even tho your entry statement calls those PCBs IO and ALT does not make it so.
