Hi,

We pass data from JCL to COBOL using either SYSIN or PARM.

Is it possible to pass the data from COBOL to JCL?

Please explain in detail or any web link.

Thanks in advance.

JCL by itself, as a language, has no "arguments" recieving capability (like ACCEPT in COBOL or ARG in REXX).

Hoever -
If you want to pass a numeric value, you can do that using the RETURN-CODE special register.

For all other data types, you'll have to write them into a dataset that will be read later by your job.
