Hi,

I have a Db2 store procedure which recieves data from a webservice. I want to know is it possible to pass address of the variable from web service in stead of actual variable in the LINKAGE section?

Please suggest.

Click on the manuals link at the top of the page, find the COBOL Language Reference manual, and look up USAGE POINTER.

Why are you wanting to do this? Generally, using the variable directly is much easier in COBOL.
