HI

The program is coded like this
01 WL-001-PARAMETER-AREA.
05 WL-001-PARM-LENGTH
BINARY PIC S9(4).
05 WL-001-PARM-RPT PIC X(5).

PROCEDURE DIVISION USING WL-001-PARAMETER-AREA

But in the JCL he is not using any parm parameter
he is excuting the proc whether it will run successfully if so i would like to know how it will work

I don't understand exactly what is our question.

The using clause appended on procedure division tells the pgm that
we are using the afore (in program ) defined in DATA DIVISION as
01 WL-001-PARAMETER-AREA.

and the code you're showing is only part of the pgm.
if you want an explanation of what pgm does post the whole code !!!
there is no instructions (after procedure division line).

Hi Bluebird

I mean without using PARM in JCL can we excute the program
actualy it is getting the report number from this parm,
of course the value of the PARM will be moved to report
my question can we excute it with out mentioning about the PARM in JCL

Thankyou

Hi Srini,

The ans to your ques is "maybe". You have to look at the pgm logic. For example, if the code has this stmt you may be able to correctly print a report even if the PARM wasn't provided in the JCL.
Code:

IF WL-001-PARM-LENGTH        = ZERO
    MOVE 'default-pgm-name' TO RPT-HDG-NAME
ELSE
    MOVE WL-001-PARM-RPT    TO RPT-HDG-NAME
END-IF

Regards, Jack.
