In Move Mode, that is, when Locate Mode is set to N and Parcel Mode Fetch is set to Y or N, Fetch Data Pointer is the field where the application program specifies the address of its Move area before calling DBCHCL for the Connect, Run Startup, or Initiate Request functions.
If Fetch Maximum data length is less than the actual data to be returned by CLI, CLI will return a BUFOVFLOW error.
Variable length fetch should not be set to 'Y' when parcel mode is set to 'N'.
- Y, CLI copies the two-byte length field that precedes the Parcel body into the address specified in Fetch Data Pointer.
- N, CLI copies the parcel body into the address specified in Fetch Data Pointer.
- Variable Length Fetch must be set to N, and
- CLI copies one buffer full of response into the address specified in Fetch Data Pointer.
