Hi all,

I am new to DB2 and I have the following question.
We have a requirement to get the result from a DB2 user defined function.
How do you embed the DB2 function into the cobol program?
A small example?

Please get back if my first message is vague.

Thank you in advance.

Anything related to DB2 must be wrapped in EXEC SQL.. END-EXEC.
You can query the function on SYSIBM.SYSDUMYY1 or use a SET.

Thank you for the answer.
I assume the set you mention will be something like :

exec sql set :result = db2function end-exec

Please do the research yourself next time and refer to the manuals if required which makes the learnings mutual.
See if this helps and if not then talk to DBA
