How to get parameter values in COBOL?

Postby RajendraPrabhuS » Thu Jul 23, 2009 11:48 am

Hi, I am having a JCL where in I am passing a set of values to COBOL using PARM.

For Eg., //COBCAL EXEC PGM=PSWRITE,PARM="1004 NEERAJ KUMAR 25 10000"

1004 - EMPLOYEE NO
NEERAJ KUMAR - EMPLOYEE NAME
25 - AGE
10000 - SALARY

In which section do we need to define the parameter variables in COBOL and how to do?
Please any one help me. :?:

I believe that you need to define something in the Linkage section of the program.
It's over 25 years since I played COBOL, so things may have changed since then.

Very Thanks Steve... How many characters we can pass at the max? (I asking for the length of PARM)??
