In one of my projects I am needing to read the contents of a dataset as the parameter that I am passing to the proc. Is there a way to do this?

Below is an example of a piece of the JCL and where I need to be able to read the contents of the dataset:

//SQLLDR EXEC ORALDRXX,REGION=0M,USERID='READ CONTENTS',
// INDEX=IDOX00P.PO

sqlmainframe,

I think we are unclear on what you are trying to accomplish here.

Can you please re-state your question in more detail?

Thanks,

Dave

I need to override a symbolic parameter.

Below is the portion of the proc that contains the symbolic parameter I need to override. It is in bold.
//ORALDR EXEC PGM=SQLLDR,REGION=4M,
// PARM=('CONTROL=/DD/&INDD USERID=&USERID',
// 'LOG=/DD/&LOGDD DIRECT=&D')

The data that needs to be read into the proc is contained within a PDS on the mainframe. I need the PROC to accept the contents of the dataset instead of hardcoding the data into the JCL. Is there a way within JCL to do this?

Below is the portion of the JCL:
//SQLLDR EXEC ORALDRXX,REGION=0M,USERID='USERID/PASSWORD',
// INDEX=IDOX00P.PO

Hopefully this clarify the question.
