Hello and welcome to the forum,

I have some problem in calling Host COBOL program from PL/I program in CICS region.
Telling us "it didn't work provides nothing for us to use to help you. What problem occurred? To get help from the forum, most of the work is in the clear definition of the problem.

I am even not sure it's possible or not.
It should be possible. Can you successfully call this cobol module form another cobol module? If not, i'd suggest you fix whatever prevents the cobol to cobol call before addressing the pl/i problem - it may not be related to pl/i at all.

Here's a link to a sample of pl/i calling cobol (non-cics) but maybe it can provide some info you can use:

Hope this helps,
d.sch.
