Hi,
I have a job which executes a proc1. This proc1 executes proc2.
How can I give override to a DD in the Proc2 from the jcl?
Please help me ASAP.

Thanks,
Paul.

You can't. Unless of course the PROC is properly designed and the area for change is a symbolic. Apart from that - NO GO.

ASAP am sure are pathetic

a JOB does not execute a PROC,
a JOB invokes a PROC.
PROCS invoke PROCS
PROC invoke programs
The Operating system executes PROGRAMs.

can't override a nested proc.
had you bothered to read the manual,
done a search on this website,
you would have known that.
But I realize you are very, very busy as well as important,
and require others to do your thinking, researching, problem solving for you.

a properly constructed nested proc situation would have the necessary symbolics in place to provide this function.
that by the way is the solution.

If making PROCs instream is an option...(though that will not be an override, as far as the definition of override goes)?
