Hello and welcome to the forum,

You need to look these up in the IDMS documentation.

If you find something in the documentation that is not clear, post what you found and your question about what you found.

If your organization is licensed to use the product, all of the material is available free from the CA Support web site.

Hi Kiran,
When you say IDMS-RECORDS MANUAL ,, after the query you will have to handle the return code from IDMS explicitly.

When you say IDMS-RECORDS AUTO-STATUS , in the query itself you can handle the error status from IDMS.

Hi Kiran,

Here is the entension to previous reply..

The PROTOCOL statement is a compiler-directive statement that specifies the manner in which the DML processor will generate CALL statements. In this example, BATCH indicates that the program will run in the batch rather than the online mode. The IDMS-RECORDS MANUAL clause specify records whose data descriptions (or record layout) will be copied from the data dictionary into the working-storage section by using the statement ‘COPY IDMS RECORD <rec-name> in the Data Division.

Note: - If we mention ‘MODE IS BATCH DEBUG’, then DEBUG indicates that the DML processor will supply additional code in the resulting source program that will be helpful in program debugging using the debugger.


Hope this will clear your doubts.

Hello,

Sorry for the delayed reply - tried to send this last night (my time), but the forum web site went down.

The 3rd part should be responsible for providing the needed material to people working on their system.

The CA material is covered by copyright and we may neither post nor link to it. If the "3rd party" has a license to use the product, they can download all of the material for free from the CA SUpport site.

Hi Kiran,

If you dont give either MANUAL or AUTO,then precompiler considers that one as AUTO which would copy all records of the given subschema from IDD.But if you give MANUAL(for which COPY statement is a must), then only selected records will be copied. Let me know if you have any questions.

Kiran,

In additon to manual or auto one more TYPICAL option that we can use in PROTOCOL is
IDMS-RECORDS WITHIN (workingstorage secction/Linkage section) LEVELS INCREMENTED BY *.

when you say within WORKING-STORAGE section, all records in the given SSC would be copied into working storage section. If you say with in LINKAGE section then description of records would be copied into LINKAGE section.

LEVELS INCREMENTED BY * --> This clause we use to define the level of each group data item and each elementary data item in the subschema description.

For ex : when you say LEVELS INCREMENTED BY 2, below is how the precompiler expands the records.

*03 COPY IDMS SUBSCHEMA-DESCRIPTION
03 SUBSCHEMA-CTRL.
05 PROGRAM-NAME PIC X(8)
VALUE SPACES .
05 ERROR-STATUS PIC X(4)
VALUE '1400' .

When you say LEVELS INCREMENTED BY 4 ,
*05 COPY IDMS SUBSCHEMA-DESCRIPTION
05 SUBSCHEMA-CTRL.
07 PROGRAM-NAME PIC X(8)
VALUE SPACES .

I believe you got the diffenrence. Let me know if you have any questions.
