Hi,

Plz explain me the difference between

RUN PROGRAM(TESTDSJB) PLAN(TESTPLAN) LIB ('DB2DBA.DBA.BTCHLOAD') PARMS ('/parm1 parm2')

and

RUN PROGRAM(TESTDSJB) PLAN(TESTPLAN) LIB ('DB2DBA.DBA.BTCHLOAD') PARMS ('parm1 parm2')

Note: with forward slash and without forward slash

Parameters after the slash are passed as Language Environment run-time options. Parameters before the slash are passed to your application program.

Shreejita, that was a quite specific response. If you don't know about Language Environment, you need to go to the IBM web site and read the LE manuals.
