Introduction: 

I am upgrading to CA Datacom 15.0 with CA Dataquery 15.0.

Question: 

15.0 CABDSAMP(DQCSD) shows entries for CICS transactions DQPC and DQPI.

What are these transactions?

Environment:  

z/OS DQ 15.0

Answer: 

DQPC and DQPI were transactions used by CA Dataquery/PC.

Version 9.0 was the last version where Dataquery/PC could be used and supported.

So not anymore since version 10.0.

These CICS definitions will be removed from this CSD member in the near future.
