What is a check point : A point in the execution of program when, the changes made to the database are considered complete and accurate.
Once checkpointed, the changes made are not reversible.

To establish intermediate checkpoints it is used. By default, the Beginning as well as the normal end of a Batch program are checkpoints.

HOW: By issuing a CHKP call, while a program is being executed.

CHKP call causes all the databases changes made since the last checkpoint to be permanently committed to the physical database thereby making a Backout impossible.

Priyesh.

Checkpoint are used basically to save the data that is processed correctly.
In cases where u have a large number of records to be processed u really dont know if all the records have the right info to pass thru there could be cases where an abend can occur.

In such cases u do not want to loose data that is already processed .so u place a checkpoint saying after x records place a checkpoint and code the program in such a way that if it the first run of the program just start normally else restart from the last checkpoint taken...

In short checkpoint is a systematic way of abending the program in case one happens so u dont loose any data.
