02 X-TAB-05 OCCURS 1 TO PARM1-REC TIMES

Have you searched the forum / manuals for reading values from PARM.
Once you have read the value you can use it however you want.

you can even redefine the parm value as a COBOL Internal table in linkage section.

but, maybe that is too much information.

well maximum size of PARM can only be 100.

and did you check the syntax of the occurs clause?

Did you check the manual (link at the top of the page)? The COBOL Language Reference clearly states that OCCURS integer-1 TO integer-2 TIMES is the syntax. I'm sure if you search enough you will discover that COBOL means integer numbers only when it says integer-2 -- NOT VARIABLES. Per the manual, I believe the answer to your question is no, you cannot use PARM1-REC in the OCCURS clause.
