How can we pass data from cobol to JCl?..

Answer / sri

When someone ask you that question first thing you need to
do is you post a question to him.

Passing data from COBOL to JCL means where in JCL ?

Do you mean a file? File is also a part of JCL. If it is
file then your answer is WRITE the data into the file.

Do you mean a PDS member ? Then WRITE the data or what ever
into the PDS member.

Do you mean SYSOUT ? If so just DISPLAY the value.

If he says not these three then he need to tell what is the
purpose of moving data to JCL ? for you to give an answer.

//ERRLST DD
SYSOUT=P,DCB=RECFM=F,FCB=L56
