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.

Answer / gigish thomas
create a Symbolic Parameter in jcl woith out goiving any
value.In the job step passthis symbolic parameter through
PARM parameter to cobol program.in the linkage section of
the cobol program assign the value/string to the symbolic
variable. It will automatically reflect to the symbolic
variable which was defined in JCL program.
