I was trying to make an external subroutine cobol program on MVS but I was having problem with source and target. What would be my source stage and target stage. You see, I am a cobol programmer before and I know the data have to be passed thru linkage section in and out. Do I have to manually code this subroutine.
I have no problem calling an subroutine from the calling program. I can use the external routine stage or I can use external source and external stage. The only problem as I said would be how to create the sub-routine in the MVS. Please help.

Re: external subroutine2007-03-22T13:20:38Z in response to SystemAdminHi,
The routine would have to be coded externally.
In the Datastage you would need to register the external routine by creating a mainframe routine.
For any job you make in datastage, you can use the external routine stage and select the external routine you registered.
Hope it helps.
