You can use MF COBOL

In select statement you got to give the physical path location of the file.
More details refer to MF COBOL manual.

You can use SHELL scripts, similar to JCL and pass parameters

Hello,

Quote:
In select statement you got to give the physical path location of the file.
Or, you can specify a symbolic name (rather than the specific full path) which makes execution much more straightforward.

Using the symbolic name allows the same executabled to be run using many different path/filenames which is a big help for testing versus production or if there is some need for a "special" run.
