Hi,

In Entry statement an array parameter is declared as (*) DEC FIXED in parameter descriptor but while passing argument '*' is not used.

Can anybody tell what would happen? Will compiler create any DUMMY argument? I don't have access to mainframe now, so I cannot test the situation.

I guess the entry statement looks like this :

entry(*,fixed dec)

* An asterisk specifies that, for that parameter, any data type is allowed. The only attributes which are valid following the asterisk are:
v ALIGNED or UNALIGNED
v ASSIGNABLE or NONASSIGNABLE
v BYADDR or BYVALUE
v CONNECTED or NONCONNECTED
v INONLY, INOUT, or OUTONLY
v OPTIONAL
No conversions are done.
