I have a cobol db2 program(PGM A) where other program (PGM B) will call this program and passes some 50 fields data to PGM A. PGM A has some layout in which it receives the data from PGM B. And this layout has been copied in the linkage section pf PGM A. After getting the data, PGM A writes the data in a flat file in the same layout which it receives from PGM B. PGM B is a simple COBOL pgm. Please provide a JCL to run these programs.

What do we mean by 'Virtual storage' for a dataset and for a JOBSTEP ? What is the significance of the following statement for a programmer 'Virtual storage results in program addresses being independent of the addresses that actually exist in a computer' ?
1) SORT FIELDS=(20,4,CH,D,10,3,CH,D) OUTREC FIELDS=(7:20,4,C' FUTURE ',20,2,10,3,1Z,1,9,13,7, 24,57,TRAN=LTOU,6X'FF') This example illustrates how a fixed-length input data set can be sorted and reformatted for output. The SORTIN LRECL is 80 bytes. The reformatted output records are fixed length with a record size of 103 bytes. SOLRF (the IBM-supplied default) is in effect, so unless the SORTOUT LRECL is specified or available, it will automatically be set to the reformatted record length of 103. in the above example i have some doubts that a) sort fields=(20,4,CH,D,10,3,CH,D) -what exactly it does and this fields related to output record fields or input record fields b)outrec used to refprmat the records after sorting that means could please reply me as soon as possible Thanks.

I have mainpgm(abc) this is the only cobol pgm(non-db2).And this pgm calling subpgm name "acd" this also only cobol(non- Db)and this pgm calling some other subpgm this pgm has cobol-db2 pgm. 1) IF you calling static mode how to run and how to compile? 2) IF you calling dynamic mode how to run and how to compile? plz suggestion me.
