This works

call qsys2.qcmdexc('rmvlible msddcb');

We are on 7.3 and about 6 months behind latest PTF's

Have you checked if the QCMDEXC function exists within the QSYS2 library.
May be you are not on the current PTF level or are missing some PTFs

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Best regards

This also fails with the same error ...

select A.*,
when qsys2.qcmdexc('addlible msddcb') = 1 then 'Success'
else 'Failed'
end as "Status"
from msddcb.accountsn A;

I'm not sure, but the argument to the scalar function looks like it
into two strings rather than one because of the comma. That prototypes to
function that does not exist. I see too many unnecessary "concats" there.
Try to rebuild the final string that becomes only one.
Maybe that's it.

I am trying to use qcmdexc in a iACS Run SQL Scripts and it is failing

If I run call qsys2.qcmdexc('addlible msddcb'); This works

If I try the following the error indicates it can not find qcmdexc in

select A.*,
when QSYS2.QCMDEXC('call ' || 'PROGRAM ' || '(' || COY, AC || ')' ) =
1 then 'Success'
else 'Failed'
end as "Status"
from msddcb.accountsn A;

I have tried putting call in front but that made no difference

What am I missing ?

I copied this basically from an example I found.

The error is

select A.*, case when qsys2.qcmdexc('addlible msddcb') = 1 then 'Success'
else 'Failed' end as "Status" from msddcb.accountsn A SQL State: 42704
Vendor Code: -204 Message: [SQL0204] QCMDEXC in QSYS2 type *N not found.
Cause . . . . . : QCMDEXC in QSYS2 type *N was not found. If the member
name is *ALL, the table is not partitioned. If this is an ALTER TABLE
statement and the type is *N, a constraint or partition was not found. If
this is not an ALTER TABLE statement and the type is *N, a function,
procedure, trigger or sequence object was not found. If a function was not

found, QCMDEXC is the service program that contains the function. The
function will not be found unless the external name and usage name match
exactly. Examine the job log for a message that gives more details on
which function name is being searched for and the name that did not match.

Recovery . . . : Change the name and try the request again. If the
object is a node group, ensure that the DB2 Multisystem product is
installed on your system and create a nodegroup with the CRTNODGRP CL
command. If an external function was not found, be sure that the case of
the EXTERNAL NAME on the CREATE FUNCTION statement exactly matches the
case of the name exported by the service program. Failed statements: 1
