I think the TS is looking for some kind of a simulator I guess.

I initially misunderstood that the user is try to run a job remotely.

Reading both the replies from you, teja, and it sounds like you, with your current system set-up - you cant' do it.

The usual ways:
  1. Get the Hercules emulator, MVS 3.8j, etc. for your PC.
  2. Rent access to a mainframe, real or simulated.
  3. Hi, Opal!

Dumb question: Can DB2 run on MVS 3.8? If not, then the TS isn't going to have much luck running his Cobol/DB2 program.

for db2 search the net for the IBM DB2 express edition ( free download )

for cobol search for the fujitsu cobol student edition... it should work with db2
( but You will have to investigate Yourself a bit more )
