Usage Notes

The Run Pointer field specifies a particular set of services to be used by the database session.

Language Variable Name
COBOL: DBCAREA-RUN-PTR
C: DBCAREA.H: run_ptr
Routine Action Taken
DBCHINI: writes
DBCHCL: reads (CON)
Used by Action Taken
application program writes

If Run Pointer is zero, DBCHCL uses Teradata SQL as the default value.

The application program may specify the value of Run Pointer. To do so, the program must build a run string or a Connect parcel body and set Run Pointer to the address of the run string for the Run parcel or the address of the connect parcel body before calling DBCHCL for the Connect function. Teradata SQL is an allowed value. Run string is not case sensitive.

Run Pointer is the address of the beginning of the run string.
