Step 1—Copy the tablesONLINE control libraries

Copy the contents of the following tableBASE libraries to three new libraries—for an example of the JCL required to do so, see the member TBOL600 in your.prefix.CNTL (or TBOL600V if it is a VSAM library):

  • your.prefix.TBACTLB
  • your.prefix.TBAPPLB
  • your.prefix.TBDICLB

This is necessary because some or all of the tables in the above libraries will be altered in the course of using tablesONLINE/CICS. Copying the libraries ensures that the original libraries will always be available for reference.
