The main difference between COPY and INC is that
The member that is included becomes available to the precompilation phase which enables the varibles in the included members to be used in SQL statements.
Thanks for help.
But in a ordinary cobol program..where there is no DB2 access ...then what is the difference between copy and inc?
I have seen normal cobol copybooks to be added both via copy and inc.
I just checked a previous topic with same subject.
The difference seems to be when there is need for precompilation....so can it be concluded that for an ordinary cobol program without DB2 copy and inc means exactly the same thing???????????
