hi
The question is

Can we pass a table from one pgm to another using CALL statement?

If yes then How?

What is the difference between passing through index and pass through subscript?

I know the basic difference between theses but not in respect with passing.

Thanks & regards

I think this is possible when you make use of COPY instead of CALL.

Search our forum because similar topic has been discussed.

A subscript is a working storage data definition item, typically a PIC (999) where a value must be moved to the subscript and then incremented or decremented by ADD TO and SUBTRACT FROM statements. An index is a register item that exists outside the program's working storage. You SET an index to a value and SET it UP BY value and DOWN BY value.

It's not possible to pass an index via linkage. The index is not part of the calling programs working storage.


Hope this helps.

Hi all,
we can call table using subscript but we cant call table using index.
We define subscript in W-S section as separate elementary item so that we can use subscript while calling
but we cant use index for the same

chandan
