If the value provided is not appropriate for the application, perform the following steps before calling DBCHCL for the Connect, Run Startup, or Initiate Request function:

  1. Set Change-options to 'Y'.
  2. Change the value for Locate Mode as follows:
    • Y, if the data returned is to be made available in the response buffer.
    • N, if the data returned is to be made available in the Move area.
    A Locate Mode of Y is known as Locate Node. A Locate Mode of N, with Parcel Mode Fetch of Y, is known as Move Mode. (Locate Mode operates in conjunction with Parcel Mode Fetch.)
    The setting of Locate Mode affects the use of Fetch Maximum Data Length, Fetch Data Pointer, Fetch Returned Data Length, Fetch Parcel Flavor, and Fetch Error Indicator.
    Do not set both Variable Length Fetch and Locate Mode to Y.
