In nested programs, indicates the program or programs for which to generate DB2 interface code.
Tip: For detailed information on how the DB2 ECM handles nested programs, see
Support for Nested COBOL Programs.
- When used without the
program-id parameter, the DB2 ECM generates DB2 interface code for the main program by default.
- A program ID that, when encountered by the DB2 ECM, triggers the generation of DB2 interface code for that program only. Any
nested program ID encountered before the specified program ID is ignored and no DB2 interface code is generated for that program.
Note: You must specify the program ID in the source code to avoid compiler errors.
IGNORE-NESTED is mutually exclusive to both the SINGLE_PACKAGE and MULTI_PACKAGE directives.
