1. JCL cannot handle this. JCL does nothing but execute programs. If you had wanted to do this with SORT or IEBGENER or one of the other utility programs that can be executed with JCL, that may have been possible.
2. COBOL can handle the data although you may have to use reference modification since there are commas in the data as well as being used as delimiters. Find a quote mark and everything until the next quote mark belongs to the data variable you are handling.
