The answer probably depends on what program is reading them, but theoretically, no.

Hello,

If there is a large number of records or an unpredictable number of records, you should use a SELECT/FD/OPEN/READ rather than ACCEPT. . .

Is there any limit to maximum number of records we can input thru SYSIN ==> No.

Always follow the good practices while coding any JCL or program in cobol.. If you are providing large number of records in SYSIN, then there will be confusion in your mind while accepting the records in COBOL program. It is good to have a separate file and then read record from file and move on..

Hope this help you!!
