I think the idea was to make it "prettier" Chuck <grin>

SQL should allow invocations similar to what is expressed as

modification to the existing program even possibly without impacting
existing invokers, or a /wrapper/ program for invoking the existing]
program ProperCase and for example use the SQL SET to assign the value,
perhaps something like?:

SET :PRINT-LINE = ProperCase(cast(:CUST-NAME as CHAR(1000)));

SET :PRINT-LINE = ProperCase(cast(:CUST-ADDRESS-1 as CHAR(1000)));

I have a pgm ProperCase to change an UPPER-CASE string to Mixed-Case.

For example, "123 ELM ST" changes to "123 Elm St"

The field that I want to pass as a parm may be different lengths for
example

CUST-NAME PIC x(50).

CUST-ADDRESS-1 PIC X(30).

I have been coding as follows:

move CUST-ADDRESS-1 of CUST-FILE to ws-string
call 'ProperCase' using ws-string
move ws-string to PRINT-LINE.

I would much prefer to do something like

Move ProperCase (CUST-ADDRESS-1) to PRINT-LINE
