Program DBFIND provides the capability to search multiple reports, on DASD in a View database, for a string of characters.
It is possible to search multiple reports that reside on DASD in a View database for a string of characters using the SARSAM9 program DBFIND.
DBFIND is a program (assembled from CVDEOPTN(SARSAM9)) to demonstrate how CA-View's Database Access Method (SARSAM) can be used to retrieve specialized information from reports that are on the primary DASD of the database.
Here is JCL to run the DBFIND function:
//STEP1 EXEC PGM=DBFIND,PARM='VIEW.DB1'; <=== Modify DB name //STEPLIB DD DISP=SHR,DSN=VIEW.CAILIB <=== Modify, if used //SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=* //SYSIN DD * /control cards /*
This is the Control card format:
/FIND ID=report_id VALUE='string'
ID - is the Report ID to be searched.
It may specify a trailing wildcard(*).
ID=* will search all reports.
VALUE - is the character string used to search each specified report data line.
Only reports which are resident on primary DASD will be searched.
NOTE: If security is implemented on the database, the user must have Read access to any report that will be searched.
