Call & Execute a COBOL-DB2 from a COBOL program?

Post by rangab » Fri May 05, 2006 10:41 am


Can anybody explain me how to call and execute a COBOL-DB2 sub-program from a COBOL main program.

Please provide the JCL and other required details.

If it is a COBOL-DB2 program then we use IKJEFT01 utility and mention PLAN etc in the SYSTSIN DD * (instream data). Now, the calling program is a pure COBOL program and it's called program is a COBOL-DB2 program. Any idea?

Thanks for your help.
