I have a simple requirement for creating a job which will -
- Read a sequential file,
- Extract a particular value from the 3rd record.
- Assign that value to a symbolic parameter which is used in a proc in next step.
I know how to code first two steps, but am not quite sure about third. Is there any way to assign a value to symbolic parameter used in catalogued procedure by reading a sequential file.
I tried referring manuals but could see only two way - SET and assigning in EXEC stmt for assigning values to symbolic parameters. So I am not very optimistic that my problem will have a solution, but you never know, there are many experts in this forum.
Any sort of help will be appreciated, Thanks in advance.
