Hi, Please note that at present we have a IBM VisualAge SmallTalk application which uses/calls CICS Universal Client for Windows NT Version 3.1 to connect to our mainframe server and retrieve the details from there. The data is stored on mainframe as DB2 files. Now, as part of our enhancement we want to integrate this retrival system into one already existing VB application wherein the VB application interacts with the CICS Universal Client to connect and retrieve the datas from the mainframe server. Please guide on how the VB application can interact with the CICS client. Looking forward to your response. Warm regards, Ajay

What I did was create a db2 stored procedure which then uses the Uses the exci interface to fire a cics transaction. The stored procedure is invoked via an activex running in a DTS job. Works fine.

I can provide more details if needed.

EXEC CICS
LINK PROGRAM(‘OF090220′)
TRANSID(‘EXCI’)
APPLID(OF030591-SYSTEM-ID)
COMMAREA(OF090221-LINKAGE)
LENGTH(LENGTH OF OF090221-LINKAGE)
DATALENGTH(LENGTH OF OF090221-LINKAGE)
RETCODE(EXCI-EXEC-RETURN-CODE)
SYNCONRETURN
END-EXEC

HIS server ( was 2000, now 2004) - the WIP feature (Windows Initiated Processing) - connected to the CICS via LU 6.2. Simple and works.
