Subject: Change *DTAARA from within a COBOL pgm ?


I have a COBOL 400 program that uses a call to QCMDEXC to change a *DTAARA
(Data area).
Is there a less overhead utilizing manner in which to change a *DTAARA from
within a COBOL program than using the QCMDEXC?
Maybe some similar way to the way RPG400 does it by using the IN opcode then
the OUT opcode?
Thanks!
Tim Truax  :-)
