Add the following DD statements to the JCL of your BMPs or MPRs 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. Add, if desired, a DD for the TBOPT file (a sequential file or PDS member, of format F or FB, record length 80).
    • //TBOPT   DD  DISP=SHR,DSN=your.prefix.tbopt_file

    This file is read whenever tableBASE initializes. See tableBASE run-time options for more information on TBOPT parameters.

  4. If you use the Strobe feature, add a DD for the strobe report, for example,

    For IMS programs that are not BMPs or MPRs, see the tableBASE Programming Guide on how to set up your JCL.
