Add the following DD statements to the JCL of your CICS regions that will be using tableBASE:

  1. To the STEPLIB concatenation, add
    • //    DD   DISP=SHR,DSN=your.prefix.LOAD
  2. Add, for each tableBASE library to be referenced
    • //libname    DD   DISP=SHR,DSN=your.prefix.table_lib

    Here, libname is the name that will be used in LIB-LIST of applications calling tableBASE to reference the library specified by the DSNAME value.

  3. If you are using a sequential file or PDS member for TBOPT, instead of a VSAM file, add a DD for the TBOPT file.
    • //TBOPT   DD  DISP=SHR,DSN=your.prefix.tbopt_file

    A TBOPT sequential file or PDS member must be defined with format F or FB with record length 80. This file is read whenever tableBASE initializes. See tableBASE run-time options for more details on the TBOPT parameters.

    Starting with Version 6, the TBOPT file can either be a sequential file or a VSAM file. In previous releases, the TBOPT file always had to be a VSAM file. Omit this DD statement if you continue to use a VSAM TBOPT file.
