When an ElicitData, ElicitDataByName, or ElicitFile response parcel is fetched, the database requires additional information to complete the request. To provide that information, an application must perform the following steps:

  1. Modify the DBCAREA.
    1. Set the Function to 15 (ContinueRequest).
    2. Set the Input CLIv2 Session Id to the Output-CLIv2-request-number returned when the session was established.
    3. Set the Input-CLIv2-request-number to the Output-CLIv2-request-number returned when the request was initiated.
    4. Set the Request-pointer field.
    5. Set the Request-length field.
    6. Optionally set the following fields:

      Fetch Buffer Length field

      Message-area-pointer field

      Message-area-length field

    7. Optionally set the Change-options option to 'Y', and set the following:

      C2S-conversion option

      Locate-mode option

      Maximum-parcel option

  2. Call DBCHCL to perform the ContinueRequest function.
  3. Check the return code from DBCHCL:
