Answer / abc

There are certain parameters which will not apply to the
entire proc if the proc step name is omitted e.g. the PARM
parameter. This will apply for the first step only. How
this works for the other parameters COND, TIME and REGION
if the proc step name is not provided during override?

Answer / aeon533

You may exclude. It depends whether you want to override
any parameter for the whole proc or for a specific procstep.
If you want to do it for a particular step then the format
is COND.PROCSTEP = value. If you want to do it for whole
proc then you may use unqualified overriding parameters
like EXEC PROC TIME= , REGION = etc but the parameters are
to be in the same order as they are in the actual proc.
