need help on EZT for calling DB2 COBOL

Postby tangtang » Tue Jan 06, 2009 11:51 pm

I want to create an instream EZT program, via SYSIN,
but in the EZT pgm I will need to call a DB2 program for key compution,
normally when we do this we will need to specify the PLAN/DB2 information,
but how can we do this in a instream EZT program?

I want to make the EZT pgm instream since it's a onetime data patching, while the DB2 cobol routine is available in prod already.

Hello and welcome to the forums,

Which release of Easytrieve is used on your system?

Several people have had problems calling a cobol module from their implementation of Easytrieve - suggest you create a very simple cobol module and make sure it can successfully be called before trying to call a cobol/db2 module.

I've not tried to call a cobol/db2 program from Easytrieve, but will look around for info once you post which release of Easytrieve you use.
Hope this helps,
