hi,

I think embedded sql is the only way to access db2 from cobol, but I just want to confirm with you guys.

Thanks

by imbedded, you mean Static SQL (explained here)
as apposed to ?
dynamic SQL (explained here)
both of which refer to DB2 Application Programming and SQL Guide (here)
and look at Chapter 24. Coding dynamic SQL in application programs.

by the way, the answer without the 'but/or actually',
is no, you are misinformed.

as an answer to your topic title,
even with dynamic, you have imbedded SQL
in order to ship the 'dynamic stuff' to db2.

if would be a shame to code in all the CALLs to DSNHA/H/S/L/RLI
just to avoid a pre-comp and a bind
because of nothing else,
your dba's could track the 'dynamic sql programs' via the sysibm tables
and not thru the program source code.
but, i have a hunch your question is not that technical.
