Why DLITCBL in IMS DB programs you need

The DLITCBL is an entry point to COBOL to access IMS DB database.

This is Mandatory in all COBOL and IMSDB programs.

The keyword ‘entry’ says that connecting COBOL to an external interface. I mean that is IMS DB.

The syntax is as follows

PROCEDURE DIVISION. 

   ENTRY ’DLITCBL’ USING IOPCB

Notes:

  • DLITCBL is allowed only in main programs
