Display Dataset Using Two Natural Maps

Postby Ethical_Hacker » Thu Jan 12, 2017 11:17 pm

I was doing some research on this and I found the following forum post with an answer that I am inquiring about here.

http://ibmmainframes.com/post-56193.html

In the answer, atulrukmangad noted that an option to display a dataset using a Natural Map is "storing the data in a temporary ddm and then reading it." Can someone provide a JCL syntax example of what this would look like? I've been having a difficult time finding good JCL help online.

Thanks, in advance, for your help!

Have you tried the Natural manual(s). They should have example JCL for anything to with Natural that can be invoked via JCL. You would, of course, have to tailor the example to your site requirements.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

Thank you for your reply, Nic.

Is there an online Natural manual(s) that you are aware of that you would recommend? Besides these forums, I haven't been able to find much good online documentation on Natural/JCL.

Thanks, in advance.

I'm going to move this to the Natural forum, as there may be more expertise ther.

If your site is licensed to use Natural then it will have manuals. If they cannot be found you (your site) can contact the vendors for extra copies.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

If the answer to every post is going to be "read the manual," then there isn't any point in having this forum.

E_H,

Send me your e-mail address via Private Message and I'll get you set up with the manuals.

The Natural statement "READ WORK nn structure-name" (where nn is a number between 1 and 32) reads the sequential file specified by the DDNAME CMWKFnn in your JCL. You will specify structure-name to define the record's field list. Your INPUT statement will contain filed names from structure-name.

I don't know what you mean by "using two Natural maps."

Assuming the manuals you refer to are proprietary, proceed at your own risk.

Software AG manuals are copyrighted and proprietary -- they require you have a site-based user id to look at the manuals.

Mr.Heinze, I would never suggest anything illegal.

Mr. Sample, that was true about five years ago. Sofrware AG grants acces to documentation if you ask nicely.

Send me your e-mail address in a private message and I'll send the procedure.

It looks like Software AG still restricts access to documentation -- my attempt to get to it returns a Server Error 403 and
The access to Documentation is available only for registered users and requires approval. Only members with area of interest Documentation can access it.
