Hi,
I do want to declare a symbolic in a proc, but the length of the symbloic is too long.

//TEST PROC NX=,
// PARM='LANG(UE),F(I,I),NODBCS,OFF,NOLIST,TRUNC(OPT),NODYN,CP(500),NOC(E),DATA(31),DTR,OPT(FULL)'

Could you please let me know the syntax to denote continuation in symbolics.

Thanks,
OP

Remove the quotes and enclose the parms into braces. Like the one below.

Code:

//         PARM=(LIB,MAP,OFF,TRUNC(OPT),X,OPT,       
//         DYNAM,RENT,FSRT,AWO)

What error did you encounter when you use the braces? I had tested that before posting and it worked fine for me.

When the PARM has special chars like (OPT) or blanks you must enclose the string on each line in single quotes inside the main parens.
Code:

//         PARM=('LIB,MAP,OFF,TRUNC(OPT),X,OPT',       
//         'DYNAM,RENT,FSRT,AWO')
