How to call External Program within a Service written in COBOL on AS/400? When creating a Cobol module (first step to build a Cobol server on AS/400), you must use LINKLIT option set to *PRC because Tuxedo Verbs are called as ILE procedure. You must create your Cobol module using this option LINKLIT(*PRC), otherwise your server will hang when executing it. Within your Cobol service code you might call external programs which are built as program objects (*PGM). If you only type the following code line : CALL "TP3300A" USING TP3300-LK. when building the server an error will be reported : CMDTUX_CAT:4331: ERROR: can't execute crtpgm No program is created !
