Reply with quote

Hi

If the main program 'A' is a plain COBOL program and progam 'B' is a COBOL-DB2 program and program 'A' calls program 'B'.
How should I run program A using the JCL?
Can I run directly as

//STEP1 EXEC PGM=A

or

should I use IKJEFT01 and have a PLAN for program 'A' ?

Please help me.

Hello,

Suggest you talk with the dba or some senior and learn which is the standard way to do this in your environment.

You cannot have a plan for program A since it will not have a DBRM.
But, you should create a plan for program B and run program A with that plan.

You can maybe look into using the Call Attach Facility to set up the DB2 environment before calling the db2 program? We've been using it quite successfully in our shop. Google should be able to help.
