Hi,

Can we accept the input at runtime?
I mean it should not be provided through JCL.
It should be accept at the time of execution.
Is it possible?
Please suggest the solutions.

Thank you.

It is possible when you execute your program directly under TSO..
Now you know that such thing is possible, what do you plan to next??? icon_smile.gif

It's theoretically possible, although not typically done, to accept input from a System Console.

I'm curious as to where the O/P wants the input to come from?

we can accept the input at runtime only when we are executing the program directly from the TSO itself.

Hello,

And if the "input" was in a database?
