I didn't get, probably, the essence of this question, I'll try however..

If a pure batch program PGM=Program-Name
If COBOL+DB2, using IKJEFT01
If IMS, DFSRC000

You could also call COBOL programs from with a REXX or CLIST icon_lol.gif executed in batch, of course.

A rather strange request, IMHO there is only one way to invoke your program in a job and that is to tailor your JCL to accomodate whatever suits the business and operational needs.

Answered by Anuj and then more from Expat.

Also note that cobol programs are not "called by jcl". Only executing code can call a cobol program. JCL can execute a program - cobol or otherwise. . .

Keep in mind that you completely understand what you want to know. Most of the people here do/will not.

If you explain what you mean by "process or option", you may get more usable replies.
