Tim wrote in with this question recently: "I need to update a VSAM file on a mainframe connected to an AS/400 -- via TCP/IP. Ideally, I would like to add/delete/update a record on the AS/400 and have the database issue a call to a CICS program on the mainframe, pass data to the CICS program and send a return code to my AS/400 program that the operation completed successfully." Can you help him out? -- Debra Tart, associate editor, Search400.com

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Optimally, I’d think that you want to mount the file as a remote file on the 400, then use standard record operations to do the job, without involving the program on the Z side.

==========================================================

“Remote file” might best be restated as DDM/DRDA. Add the remote database to the database directory (with WRKRDBDIRE). Perhaps a direct update to the remote database would be easier.
