SQL should allow invocations similar to what is expressed as
desired.? Should be possible to create a function for [either a
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
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
