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 subroutine2007-03-22T13:20:38ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.Hi,
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.
