Hi,
This Could be solved in 2 ways,

1. You Could use PARM, I suppose.
2. You Could override SYSIN DD DUMMY statement of your proc during call time of that proc.

Hope this helps.

If you want to pass dynamic data (like dates) in the proc, i believe you can use the K9801GCP program

hi,
to pass data externally, as far as jcl is concerned...PARM is the best choice.

In the proc code //sysin dd ddnam=anyddn
After the proc invoking exec stmt code //anyddn dd * followed by your sysin data. Not sure if you have to code //stpname.anyddn dd *.

You can test or look it up.

Hello,

If you post your proc and your execution jcl with the override, we can probably help.
