Hello,

If you post the problem code we may be able to help. NOT the entire program, just the bit about this delete.

This is an SQL statement and not a COBOL statement
It should come under EXEC SQL and END EXEC.
Since it is COBOL + DB2 it requires compile + Bind.

Refer DB2 Precompile-Compilation-Bind Process

Competitor site link deleted.

you can't have both :
OR "it wasn't accepted" which I interprete as a (pre-)compile error
OR "the delete goes into a loop" : which is impossible. A delete may have a wrong accesspath and dependant children may have no index so it would seem the delete takes forever. but a delete that goes into a loop would be a major problem for IBM.
