passing parms to cobol program from rexx

passing parms to cobol program from rexx


I have been tasked with doing some REXX work for zOS. From a REXX exec, I need to
call a cobol program and pass it 2 data fields. I have very little REXX exposure.
Any assistance on what the REXX command would look like would be great.
In the REXX exec now I am calling this program

I need to be able to pass to fields as parms to this program. One parm
is just a 7 character field and the other parm is a 4 character field.

Thank you

RE: passing parms to cobol program from rexx

It's all described in one of the manuals. Unfortunately I cannot recall if it is one of the Rexx manuals or one of the COBOL manuals. Something along the lines of inter-language communications. Some of the mainframe forums would probably have (do have) queries and responses on this - including one last month.

I found the answer to my question.

Thank you for any time spent considering this question.
