Hi guys and gals,

Any ideas about this:

I have a simple COBOL/DB2. In working storage I have a declare cursor c1 for select emp from employees.

I compile in batch - but I get a pre-complilation error:

DSNH520I E DSNHSMUD LINE 72 COL 22 THE OPEN STATEMENT FOR CURSOR 'EMP_CUR' IS INVALID BECAUSE THE CURSOR WAS DEFINED BY AN ALLOCATE CURSOR STATEMENT.

Can't understand why..any ideas much appreciated!

Thanks

thesexyone,

Can you please supply us with the exact cursor declare and the exact OPEN statement(s) for the cursor?

Thanks,

Dave

Hi chaps and chapesses,

I've actually got past this problem now. I've realized I was using version 5 of DB2 and consequently you can't declare a cursor in the working storage section. It has to be declared in the procedure division.

Thanks
