Hi,

I had a step in my proc as follows
//STEP010 EXEC PGM=IKJEFT1B,
// PARM=('%DB2BATCH','SYS(&SSID)','PROG(&PROG)','PLAN(&PLAN)','PARM(&SS)')

First thing is can i pass '&SS' like this to my &PROG(Program).
Here i had a PARM inside another PARM.
If this is not correct then how can i pass the value &SS to my cobol program.
And how can i use this variable in my cobol program from linkage section.
Can anyone tell me the syntax how to do this.

Regards,
Bhaskar.

I think that format is OK for the PARM option. What you should try is coding the linkage section as follows:

LINKAGE SECTION.

01 DFHCOMMAREA.

03 PARM-INPUT.

05 PARM-LEN PIC S9(4) COMP.

05 PARM-DATA PIC X(256).

Then PARM-DATA will contain the information passed in the PARM command from the JCL.

Regards
