In EXCI, is it possible to invoke a CICS program by another CICS progarm using a "CALL" instead of a LINK? For...
Example: There are two CICS programs, Program-A and program-B. In Program-A can we say "CALL 'PROGRAM-B' USING PARAMI, PARAMO."?
I'm not sure where EXCI comes into this: perhaps you mean that prog A is invoked via EXCI. Once you are in CICS, you can use COBOLs dynamic linkage facilities to call another CICS program. However, this way of execution iss much less efficient than a CICS link due to LE overheads.
