IMS DB-GSAM OPEN,CLOSE,GN Calls

Read my post#1 ,if you miss it. Any IMSDB-GSAM program needs minimum calls. I am just giving those:

Entry call:

Entry 'DLITCBL'   Using   TPPCB
GSam-file-Input
Gsam-file-output


Open call:

Call 'CBLTDLI'  Using OPEN
GSam-file-Input
GSam-file-Output


Read call:

Call 'CBLTDLI'  Using GN
GSam-file-Input

Insert call:

Call 'CBLTDLI'  Using Insert
GSam-file-Record


Close call:

Call 'CBLTDLI'  Using Close
GSam-file-Input
GSam-file-Output

Finally, how we know if the file is input/Output

In PSB, by looking at the below names one will know ,which is input, or output file.

Indataset= GSam-file-Input    outdataset=GSam-file-Output

So, in the COBOL program, select statements not needed.
