most probably a locally developed subroutine/function

Hi enrico,

It is a cobol subroutine only ... the pgm is placed in the system library itself... so i can't identify the pgm in normal cobol library... thank you

Have you reviewed any other program-source to determine how it's used? Have you spoken with any of your co-workers?

Somebody must have documentation, somewhere.... icon_rolleyes.gif

Hello,

Most organizations have a published list of the callable routines that includes documentation for use, which parameters are needed, and which errors might occur due to invalid parameter values.

Only someone working in the same environment you work in will have this info. This is known as "site-specific".
