I need to call a DB2 SQL stored procedure with one in parameter from a CL program. For example:
CALL LIBRARY/PROGRAM PARM(variable)If use this command, it doesn't work because of the parameter. What's the best way to handle stored procedures?
Stored procedures must be called with an SQL call statement because there are hidden internal parameters that DB2 must pass on the stored procedure call. The CL Call command cannot pass the special internal parameters. That's why you're seeing an error on the CL Call command.
