When defining MICF inquiries, there is an option to specify a 'Y' or 'N' for the 'Allow Run-Time Override of Database', 'and/or Cycle(s)' parameters. These parameters apply to the MICS File Selection inquiry step(s). When set to 'Y', you can hard-code a specific database unit ID and Cycle # that will apply to the inquiry. Once the inquiry is saved, either by PF3'ing or issuing the 'SAVE' primary command, the values specified take effect.
If the inquiry is edited again and the hard-coded database unit ID and cycle # is changed followed by a SAVE operation, execution of the inquiry again will still show the initial database unit ID and cycle #. It is not updated with the most recent values specified. Execution of the inquiry, either as PRIVATE, SHARED, or as part of a reporting job stream will still show the residual (previous) unit ID and cycle # in the execution prompt.
