Hi,

How do you code Cobol to access a parameter that has been defined in JCL?

Please suggest me if i am wrong:

ans:

If it is SYSIN input in JCL,
ACCEPT <VARIABLE> FROM SYSIN
If it parameter is give through PARM, then COBOL program
should receive through LINKAGE SECTION

environment division

file1 assign to ddname
file2 assign to ddname

for this in JCL //DDNAME DD DSN.......

LINKAGE SECTION
01 LN-LEN PIC S9(4) COMP.
01 X PIC X
01 Y PIC X
IN JCL THROUGH PARM (MAX 1 TO 100 CHAR)

procedure division.

ACCEPT X
ACCEPT Y.

IN JCL THROUGH SYSIN DD*



Thanks,
Nisha
