When we require to code a length variable with S9(4) comp in the linkage section? Or does it required to code all the times when ever we are calling the program from another program?

You have to do so incase you are passing values from JCL by PARM parameter. But while calling a program from another program you dont need to have length field as s9(4) comp

Hi Nara,

You need to code it only if you use the PARM param in the EXEC stmt for the pgm you're trying to execute.
