An alternative to embedded SQL is using SQL CLI (call level interface). This is very similar to ODBC, and the SQL can be executed either in line in the job or in SQL server mode in a separate QSQSRVR job.

Perhaps program B has invoked SQL server mode for the job (given that it is interacting with a QSQSRVR job) which then restricts somewhat what can be done in SQL for the remainder of the job.

I am not aware of any way of revoking that SQL server mode for a job once it has been established.

I'm guessing at this point that Program B is not cleaning up after

How do I get the job to disconnect from the QSQSRVR job before the
update in JOB_END?
