Issue/Introduction

Migrating from CA Easytrieve release 6.4 to release 11.6 in compatibility mode, will relinking DB2 be necessary?
 
 

Environment

CA Easytrieve Report Generator, release 11.6

Resolution

CA Pan/SQL product serves as the interface between DB2 and CA Technologies' product, especially and primarily the CA Easytrieve product.

There is not specific syntax or code for CA Pan/SQL. 

CA Pan/SQL is fine with both releases and will therefore be fine with release 6.4 and release 11.6 in compatibility mode.  No relinking is needed.

Please still add the CA Pan/SQL CAILIB to your JCL in order to have the CA Easytrieve DB2 program run correctly.  This has not changed.
