If yes, can you provide a link to a manual that shows COBOL syntax?
Besides using the SQL call level interface APIs, another solution is having the stored procedure place the result set in a global temporary table. Then, the COBOL and RPG programs can process the data in the global temporary table after the stored procedure call completes. This result set technique is covered in more detail in the following IBM Redbook: Stored Procedures, Triggers, and User-Defined Functions on DB2 UDB for iSeries.
