Comments include additional information within a IBM® Connect:Direct® Process. Comments are allowed in the following formats:
- An asterisk (*) in column one, followed by the comment. You must use this format for statements processed by DMBATCH.
- Preceded by a slash-asterisk (/*) and followed by an asterisk-slash (*/). This format can be used after a continuation mark as well as at the beginning of a line.
- Preceded by a slash-asterisk (/*), continuing over multiple lines, and terminated by an asterisk-slash (*/). The terminating */ cannot begin in column one.
The following example shows every way that you can use comments.
