Question: 

We have some CA Easytrieve programs that have been compiled and link edited. We only execute the load module version that was compiled. If we delete all CA Easytrieve datasets, will these load modules still be able to execute or does it require some CA Easytrieve datasets in order to execute?

Environment:  

CA Easytrieve Report Generator, Release 11.6

Answer: 

In order to run programs which have been compiled and linked, the CBAALOAD must be available for release 11.6 and the CAILIB must be available for release 11.5.  Easytrieve’s CBAALOAD or CAILIB library must be present in either a //STEPLIB, //JOBLIB, or link listed library.

Additional information:

The CBAAB60 is the CA Easytrieve Runtime FMID.  CA Easytrieve’s Runtime FMID must be present at runtime in order to execute CA Easytrieve load modules which have been compiled and linked.
