Issue/Introduction

Journal reports report DML statement by "verb number". Where are these verb numbers documented?

Journal reports identify verbs by a "verb number".  For example:

BFOR   SYST5555  09/24/14  20.39.17.64      1787812413   182290829

   1030  USER RECORD ID          92 USER RECD LENGTH        35 VERB NUMBER
Where are these verb numbers documented?

Environment

CA IDMS, all supported releases.

Resolution

The verb numbers are documented in the Call Formats (COBOL) section of the DML Reference for Cobol manual.
Use the DB Call Formats (COBOL) and DC Call Formats (COBOL) menu items at the left to drill down to each sub-section.
For the DB Call Formats, the numbers in the IDBMSCOM(nn) column are the VERB NUMBERs as listed in a JREPORT 008.
For example, 35 is a MODIFY.
