I would like to call a CLLE procedure
from a Trigger Insert.
I have a table called UPDATECMD, with a field 'OK'
when, from pc by ODBC driver, I insert a row,
I want to run a CLLE program on aS400.
How to do so?

create an external stored procedure that runs the program and use the CALL statement to call it (that how it should be done in zOS, i believe as400 should be similar)

Just add the trigger like this:


If required you can use qualified file and program names.

If your trigger is making changes to the record. (you can by changing the buffer before insertion)
Then you have to use the same command with different parms:


Beware, you have to remove the trigger before you add it again, or use CHGPFTRG otherwise you have 2 triggers on your file.

After the trigger is added, you can update the file from whatever program or even FTP, it will fire the trigger until it is removed or.... until you *Disable it with the CHGPFTRG command.

Good Luck
