My shop we make use of integrated CICS translator which generates the declaration statements of DFHEIBLK and DFHCOMMAREA in linkage section. This is true for each program compiled with "CICS" option. But there are some programs in my shop which explicitly pass DFEIBLK to the called programs. So first of all is it really required to pass DFHEIBLK?

The application programing guide says you need not pass the DFEIBLK or DFHCOMMAREA when using the integrated CICS translator.

Then I think you'd have to include it manually. Translator isn't going to mess around with native Cobol instructions.

EDIT: If it is needed at all. The called routine is another matter if also compiled with the translator on - will it add/add for the USING whether needed or not?
