Hi,

Can anyone tell me, plese, how this instruction change in cobol z/os ?
EXEC CICS LINK PROGRAM(ws-PGM)
APPLID(ws-APPLID)
TRANSID(ws-TRANSID)
SYNCONRETURN
RETCODE(ws-RETCODE)
COMMAREA(ws-COMMAREA)
LENGTH(WS-CALEN)
END-EXEC.
The compiler give an error "not valid" on applid and retcode

it is a cics api, not a cobol instruction. I would look in the CICS Application Programmers guide for what ever version of CICS pre-compiler you are using.
If you are using a jumbo compiler (combination cics pre-compiler and cobol compiler) take the error number and use the look-at website:
