Hi,
I just want to know how many job statements we write in a JCL ?
Suppose , I have 1 COBOL program 'c1' which calls other 2 cobol progams say 'c2' and 'c3' . I am accepting some user i/p in 3 programs.
So , how should I write JCL statement for this ?

Regards,
Nutan

There is no real limit other than how many initiators are available on the system.

Hi,
I am not getting your question?
Du you want to accept variables at the Run JCl or you want to know how to give file names at the RUN JCL
If you want to accept variables at run jcl you have to mention them in SYSIN DD * as per order of flow of your program that means you have to mention the variables at run jcl in the same order you are accepting in your three cobol programs

Nutan, I thought we already went over this in another post from you:

http://ibmmainframes.com/viewtopic.php?t=8539&highlight=

I think you need to move on.
