Specifies the frequency of the automatic save function when running a Batch Edit job; that is, the Batch Edit checkpoint frequency.
  • Increments a count by 1 each time a Batch Edit job inserts, deletes or replaces a segment.
  • Issues a checkpoint when the count is equal to the Batch Edit checkpoint frequency.

The valid range is 1 to 99999.

When you specify two values in parentheses, separated by a comma, the first value is used for BMP mode and the second value is used for DLI mode. When you specify a single value, this is used for both BMP and DLI modes.

This parameter is optional. If it is not specified on the HFM1POPI macro statement, ZDT/IMS uses either the value specified on the HFM1POPD macro statement (if specified on that statement), or "(100,100)" (otherwise).

If you do not want the user to override the value you specify for this parameter, set UIEBFREQ=N.
