i am doing a case study using cobol files with copybook and db2.
if we compie db2 + cobol we use preclink. but how we include copybook in preclink.

Hello,

What is "preclink" on your system? This is not a standard term most places.

If preclink is your process that invoked the db2 pre-compiler before the actual compile, INCLUDE is typically used to expand sql for the pre-compilation.

What exactly are you stuck with? Once we understand the doubt, we should be able to clarify.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

IN file section instead of writing ffile structure we invoked the copy book.
data division.

file section
fd file1
exec sql
include copybook1
end-exec.
replacing ==:copy:== by ==emp==.


IN this db2 precompiler shows erors. i can't resolve it.
Is this format or declaration is correct or not

Hello,

You have created your own syntax - what is coded is not in any manual. . . The code is trying to combine an INCLUDE with a feature of COPY. As far as i know, this cannot be done.

Read here about COPY:
http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/ ... lr50/8.1.4


This is the link to the COBOL Language Reference Table of Contents:
http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/ ... 0/CONTENTS

Suggest you both bookmark the ToC link as well as download a local copy of the manual.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.
