Usage Notes

Message Area Length is a 2-byte field that is the length of the area pointed to by the Message Area Pointer field.

The value is equivalent to the maximum length of a message that can be returned in that area.

CLI does not alter this value, so after it is set, it remains unless changed by the application.

Language Variable Name
COBOL: DBCIMSGM
C: DBCAREA.H: dbciMsgM (case-sensitive)
Routine Action Taken
DBCHINI: writes
DBCHCL: reads
Used by Action Taken
application program writes

If the Message Area Pointer is not specified, this value is ignored.
