I need to test the dictionary name in ADS.
Any idea how I can get this?
The variable dbname exist but the dictname I cannot find

RE: dictname

DBNAME implies DICTNAME.  DBNAME is a translation table used by the system for database mapping.  Since the dictionary is a database, it is translated through a dbname.  To see which dbname to use for the dictionary you want to target, get to the "enter next task" prompt and enter "dcmt d dbname"  this will give you a display of the DBNAMEs already set in your system.  Note the one that references your dictionary, and use that DBNAME in ADS.
