Hi Ravindra,

Your ques is a bit confusing. One doesn't "CALL" Jcl from a COBOL pgm. I'm assuming you mean something else.

Do you want to start a Job from a COBOL pgm? If so, use the search facility using "INTRDR" or "internal reader" as your search argument. If not, please explain your intent.

Regards, Jack.

hi ravindra,

As jack said one can't call jcl stmts from cobol program.but it is possible to execute a set of jcl stmts from cobol pgm.

by using the following command we can do that:


EXEC CICS SPOOL WRITE(VAR-NAME)
END-EXEC.



VAR-NAME is a cobol host structure containing jcl stmts.

You can even submit a jcl thru cobol pgm.AFAIK we cant call jcl stmts.if iam wrong someone can correct me.


THANKS AND REGARDS
ANU
