Hello All:

We have been asked to include the UUID (in MS terms GUID), "Universally Unique Identifier", in a field in the records in our DB.

Our application uses IDMS release 17, currently running under z/OS 1.10 and= soon to be upgraded to z/OS 1.12.

We have seen some references to UUID in IBM documentation but so far have not seen how to call a function in IDMS to generate and return a new UUID that we can associate with the records.

Has anybody been asked to do a similar thing and if so - has a solution been developed for this?

Thanks ... Tim Williams
