Introduction:
When adding or deleting tables to a database, it is also often necessary to adjust the URT being used in the CICS region to reflect these changes. It was formerly required to not only Close the database in the CICS region, but to also delete the URT from CA Datacom CICS Services, and then use the CEMT utility to load a new copy of the module. This process shows an easier way to do this without having to perform as many different functions.
Instructions:
As an example, if URT 123 was changed and reassembled, here is the simple process to make the changed URT module available to CICS usage:
  1. Close the URT with CICS transaction DBOC CLOSE=123
  2. Create a new copy of the URT with CICS transaction DBEC P,NEWCOPY,URT(123)
  3. Open the URT again with CICS transaction DBOC OPEN=123
Once this is done, application programs should now be able to access the URT and its tables.
