Answer / madhuri tungal

as kumar said... linking of two maps is nothing but
transfering of control and that can be achieved by
LINK (control will be returned back to main program)
or
XCTL (control wil not be returned back to main program).

to come back to main program or transfer control to any
program use following command:

exec cics return(transaction-id) end-exec.

above command will transfer the control to program
associated with transaction-id.

Answer / arun

we can establish a link between two maps in 3 ways .
LINK (control will be returned back to main program) and
XCTL (control wil not be returned back to main program).
But for the second one we have to give the return statement
with the main programs transaction-id. otherwise the control
wil not return back to the main map.
