hi all,

I heard that maximum number of parameters we can pass thru parm is 100. If it is so is there any way to pass more than 100.

Now a days wherever we go this question is being asked in interview. Can someone please answer this question.

Thanks,
radha

Hi Radha,

If interviewers are asking: are there other ways to get more data into a pgm, the ans is yes.

The closest to the PARM solution is to use SYSIN and ACCEPT it into the pgm. You could use multiple "cards" giving you the potential of much more data.

HI radha,
Using param we can pass only 100 bytes., the other alterantives to provide input for the program is sysin and alos through files.
generally parm will be used to pass some dates and taht kind of stuff,
In batch process most of the input comes through files only.
