Declare parm length and data in linkage section.

Code:
LINKAGE SECTION.

01 PARM-VALUES.

   10 PARM-LENGTH                    PIC S9(4) 
                             COMPUTATIONAL.       
   10 PARM-DATA.                               
       15 parm-1               PIC X(01). 
       15 parm-2               PIX X(10).

PROCEDURE DIVISION USING PARM-VALUES.
