Yes, it should be comp-3 to get it right inside the COBOL-program, but
there is no controll in the CALL-process, you can transfer a packed
decimal parameter in a CL to an alphanumeric parameter in the
COBOL-program, and the CALL will work just fine.  The problems come when
you try to use the parameter inside the COBOL-program(if you don't move it
to a properly defined packed field first...).

For the CALL, the important thing is that the NUMBER of parameters are
equal on both sides.

The COBOL definition should be a comp-3 (should'nt it?)
