Hello,

If there was a business requirement to list this information,the data would be in a file. The informaton for a person would be in a record. The file would be opened and read in the code and the output written as needed.
Hope this helps,

Ok thats using file handling concepts
open the file
read the file
write or rewrite the file

In batch processing these are the two methods used
1.Passing through jcl
2.using file handling concepts

thanks for that

Sorry, but no. . .

Input data is typically not embedded in the jcl. It is in a file.
Hope this helps,
