Hi
I was given a JCL with 8 inputs thru sysin. Is there any way for me to accept directly the 7th input in my program thru ACCEPT? I dont wanna keep 6 Accepts before doing this.

Hi,

One thing u can do...
predefine the size of the values ur using and if there is no value for one variable keep blanks in the sysin.

By one accept u can get all the values , after getting the entire values in one string, use string options and the predefined size of the values to get individual value.

Hope this is clear...this is one way....

we'll see if we can get any other way...
