Hi All,
I have a question regarding the maximum level in which LINK can be used.
can anybody tell me the maximum number of programs i can LINK in this way. Please refer to the example given below.

Example :
Prog ONE
========
..
EXEC CICS LINK (TWO)
...........
END EXEC
......

Prog TWO
=======
EXEC CICS LINK (THREE) ...
END EXEC

Prog THREE
========
EXEC CICS LINK (FOUR)
END EXEC
Prog FOUR
========
EXEC CICS LINK (FIVE)

I cannot imagine why you would possibly want to know this, but the limit is quite large (dozens, probably hundreds deep) I'm sure. The limit is probably (but don't quote me) based on memory available, considering the number PPT entries possible and remembering that a LINK can go into another CICS region.

I want to know this because I was proposing a solution to an enhancemnet. we need to add 2 more link levels in the chain. Already six levels of LINK command are there. It would make them 8 after enhancement.i was wondering whether there is a limit..

Thanks
debi

If there is, i would expect it will be greater than 8.
