I am trying to read data from a MQ using below command.

Code:

EXEC    CICS                    RETRIEVE                   
                                INTO (START-DATA)           
                                LENGTH(WSC-RETRIEVE-LENGTH)


After the retrieve I see the value in WSC-RETRIEVE-LENGTH as 2380 (Which included 332 bytes of MQ header, so tactful data retrieved is 2048 bytes).

But the actual length I am expecting is more than this and the data is getting truncated.

I checked with MQ admin, they told Queue is setup to receive 100MB length.

How can I get full length of data? Do I need to code multiple RETRIEVE commands?

The RETRIEVE command retrieves data stored by expired START commands,so to read any data from MQ you will use GET.
LENGTH- Upper limit of 32763 bytes on LENGTH is allowed.

You will just need to pass the MQ name into START-DATA and then use GET to access the MQ.
Please read all the related documentation and clear up the concepts before attempting it to code.

Thanks Rohit. Used MQGET with max length and it worked.
