For example, trying to access the PSB entity in the IMS Dialog returns the following error:


The entity type PSB is not valid for the current dialog IMS.



Release: DATASH00200-7.2-Repository-Webstation Option


Access the Repository installation menu by issuing TSO DBXINST from the repository command line or your custom clist if implemented.

At the main installation menu select Option #13 for Upgrade Menu.   Then select Option #5 for Load.

Set all of the Control Table switches to Y and the Current Contents parm to 'A' for Add. 

For example,

   Load control tables...                                

        DIALOGs? ===> Y    CODE TABLEs? ===> Y           

        ENTITYs? ===> Y        IO MAPs? ===> Y           

       MESSAGEs? ===> Y       COMMANDs? ===> Y           


    Set SQLID to? ===>                                   

Current Contents? ===> A (A-add,R-replace,P-new products)

  Edit or Submit? ===> E (E-edit,S-submit)               

     Save Output? ===> N (Y-yes,N-no)                    


Generate the JCL and submit the job.   Expected CC <=4.   

Upon completion of the load job, log completely out of the repository and then log back in.

Try the Dialog and Entity type combination again.
