From time to time it becomes necessary to make adjustments to the parameters which control the MICS Data Base update, reporting, and online facilities. The regeneration of these parameters has also generated some confusion as to which generation job is to be executed in order to make the changes take effect. It is the intent of this article to answer this question.
The regeneration of these parameters is a two step process. First the change to the appropriate member of the MICS parameter library (prefix.MICS.PARMS) must be completed. Then submit the correct cccPGEN parameter generation job, so that the parameters will take effect. The following is a list of the correct parameter generation job to run for changes to specific members of the parameter library.
The ALLPGEN will perform the parameter generation process for the Base Component plus all of the components listed on the COMPONENTS statement in prefix.MICS.PARMS(JCLDEF).
These parameters are implemented via generated SAS MACROS and SAS FORMATS. For a list of the MACROS and FORMATS generated from these jobs please reference the PIOM section 3.5.5 all subsections.
