Program A (Normal COBBAT) calling a B Program (DB2COBOL, COBBATDB which is using a VSAM file. its a dynamic call. How we will handle VSAM file decleration in our from JCL from where we are running A PGM. And should we have PLAN for A pGM also. if possible can some one post a sample JCL.
Thanks for help in advance.
Our issue is there seems to be a disconnect, or no link,
between our SELECT statement and our SD. We had
SELECT SORT-FILE and SELECT SORT-FILE
ASSIGN TO SORTWRK. ASSIGN TO SORTWRK1
with SD SORT_FILE
RECORD CONTAINS 7833 CHARACTERS.
In either case, at run time, the system ignored our
SORTWRK# DD statements and allocated 16 sort works with the
SORTWK## naming convention. Any ideas why the system does
not recognize the connection? We do not even need the
SORTWRK DD statements. Thanks
