Sample CA Ideal Program: EXPGEN (Export Cards) 

09-11-2014 12:10 PM

This application is provided to be used with IDEAL's Source Transport Facility. Given a parameter specifying the root program of an application, this program will follow all the relationships recorded in the dictionary to retrieve the sub-programs, panels and reports associated with the application, This is done through Dictionary Service Facility (DSF) calls.

The output of the program is a file of EXPORT commands written as file EXPGEN. These may be passed on as input to the source  

transport utility.  All messages issued in batch are in upper case.


You will need to IMPORT this program, using Source Transport (IDUTSTRN) into one of your CA Ideal systems such as $ID.

Hi Owen,


You are correct.  I just forgot to take out the NOTE.  Please ignore.  This was my first post.

Have a good day.

Hi Julia,


Regarding the statement "NOTE: This cannot be used with ADF and IDEAL/DB2. It depends on features that exist only in the CA-Datacom implementation of DSF."...


According to the CA-Ideal Installation and Maintenance Guide Release 2.2 chapter 1,1 "The ADF component does not function with Release 2.2 of CA-Ideal for DB2. "

Therefore ever since CA Ideal 2.2, the DB2 option has been installed to work with CA Datacom/AD (or full-blown CA Datacom/DB where available).


CA Datacom/AD has the full CA Datacom implementation of DSF. So am I correct in saying that this restriction should no longer apply?


Best regards,
