My cobol program is calling a sub program. The sub program is using an input file. How do we define the input file in Proc ?

Review the EXTERNAL attribute for files, data, etc, in the appropriate COBOL manual.

keep in mind that the JCL is for the RUN-UNIT not just the main-module.
for every fd in a module within a RUN-UNIT, there has to be a corresponding DD statement in the JCL.
