Hi Team,

i have a requirement where i need to each time create a report with different report names in it , this is dynamic , how can i achieve it with either Cobol or REXX
sample is

THE "H" is report name passed next time it can be something else like say "CLAIMS" ,this value will be dynamic coming from user or any parameter
any idea or link which can help me achieve this..
[/code]
Code:




   date1            header  1
   date2           header 2

 *
 *                                                  H        H       
                                                     H        H       
                                                    HHHHHHH       
                                                     H        H

Totally incomprehensible question, even after reading it 43 times.

read the cobol and jcl manuals
on how to use the jcl construct PARM to pass data to a program
Code:
//<stepname> EXEC PGM=<somepgm>,PARM='<string to be passed to the program'

gazillions of examples on a forum

and pleas be honest with Yourself, reread the post Yoou made
and think if it is the proper way to ask for help

I reread CAREFULLY all Your posts,
You might be more comfortable on the sibling forum for beginners

I agree and moved to appropriate section.

Why so many 'H's ? Regardless use the PARM as suggested or if its data set to be read then so be it , read and move it to right Header field before write.

Btw a new section is created "STUDENT FORUMs" to move topic there instead of sending to the Beginners link. FYI.

Where do the report come from?
Where do the header come from (saying 'a parm' isn't enough)?
Where do the report go to?

I assume that the answers to 1 and 3 could be DDNAME or perhaps dataset, but you need to be specific. And for the header spec there must be a source somewhere. Again you need to be specific.

irrelevant IMO

from the sample posted, the string passed to the proigram should be printed in block letters

irreĆ²evant IMO
