Hi,

Can rexx access the data stored in the datacomm. I am aware that rexx can access DB2 table but not sure whether it can access the datacomm. In our new project we need to work with the data present in the datacomm.

Thanks

Hello,

If you write rexx code to invoke cobol that interacts with Datacom, possibly.

Are your Datacom tables defined as SQL or native?

How familiar are you with Datacom?

Thanks Dick for the reply.

I know how to write datacomm queries but I am not familiar with the cobol code and its logic for accessing the Datacomm tables and it is not my requirement at this point of time.

I worked with DB2 database and it is relatively very easy to dynamically create SQL code in REXX and access the DB2 tables. I put this post to know if there are any such ways of accessing the data stored in Datacomm.

I got my answer, rexx cannot directly interact with datacomm and retrieve data. Either submit a JCl or a COBOL code which will interact with Datacomm and get the required data for you.

Using DataQuery? If yes, you will find the cobol/datacom process quite different.

One big consideration is if the Datacom tables are "sql-able".

If you do begin working with cobol/datacom and have questions, reply back here and somone will be able to clarify.
