It depends on the utility.

For example: SORT accepts asterisk in the first column as comment.

You should read the relevant documentation of each utility.

Or you can always write comments on the EOD card, after the "/*" and at least one space.

muthukannan - this is true for JCL, not for all input cards (although most of utilities indeed use this method).

Hi Ofer71,
Thanks for your reply.
Can you give some examples which will not come in that category?

Thank you,
