BPXWDYN worked well except that for INFO function. Problem was with R0 register that COBOL doesn't set to 0 (zero).
Well, BPXWDYN was recently enhaced with a BPXWDY2 entry point to ensure that's call to BPXWDY2 it's correct from HLL (even Cobol I suppose)
But Calling BPXWDY2 from Cobol to obtain DSname associated with DDname that's not going to work, nothing about field INRTDSN, i.e. dsname associated with ddname) , even if BPWXDY2 return RC=0.
Does anyone know how to code the parameter area in COBOL to make this utility work for COBOL ? If it works ?

Many thanks
