CICS sub program these are the ways to call


If the sub program is defined as “remote”,then, you may use Link command to call your sub program.

Syntax to call

Exec CICS 

Link PROGARM ("program-name")



Static and Dynamic calls can be used when your sub program is defined as local.

Note: In both the cases, the sub program must be translated, if it contains CICS code.


Always us NODYNAM compiler option. Because stored procedures use CAF, you must also compile COBOL stored procedures with the NODYNAM option.
