Pass symbolic variables as INSTREAM

Postby sumeendar » Mon Aug 25, 2014 12:26 pm

can we pass symbolic variables as sysin values,
I tried as below, but it is giving error. Any other way to handle this situation.

// SET COMP='ABCD',
// MONTH='06'
//*
//STEPD EXEC PGM=BPXBATCH,REGION=0M
//STDPARM DD *
SH /aaa/t/exbatch.sh
&COMP
&MONTH

This was asked in May 2013. Did you try searching for "symbolic parameter sysin".

You left out a few crucial parameters (this is only possible with z/OS v2r1):

// EXPORT SYMLIST=(COMP,MONTH)       
// SET COMP='ABCD',MONTH='06'
//*
//STEPD EXEC PGM=BPXBATCH,REGION=0M
//STDPARM DD *,SYMBOLS=JCLONLY   
SH /aaa/t/exbatch.sh
&COMP.
&MONTH.
