hello it is possible

if u define variable as local the value will not change in pgm b.

in pgm a:

if u declare num1 as local then before calling pgm b

display the variable.

after calling pgm b. increment num1 count to 20.

again display the cariable in pgm a. it will show same value

what value it have before because it is local variable
