Let me first qualify my post with the fact I've never worked with
HttpGetClob. That said I have worked with varying length character strings
(VARCHAR) data.

If the actual data coming into your program is VARCHAR, I would think you
were going in the correct direction when you broke the field definition
apart to separate the length from the actual data. i.e.:

01 URL-STRING.
49 URL-STRING-LEN PIC S9(4) COMP-4.
49 URL-STRING-CONTENT PIC X(255).

When you tried that, did you then reference URL-STRING-CONTENT or
URL-STRING? When I've used VARCHAR data, I've always referenced
URL-STRING-CONTENT(1:URL-STRING-LEN)

Also, isn't pic s9(4) two bytes which would only leave x(254) for the
content?

Failing the above test, I would do as Jon suggests and contact IBM. If you
can, I would also compare the pre-compiler generated code for the RPG and
COBOL and check the similarity of what they do.

And please post back to the list when you get it figured out.

Re: [COBOL400-L] How to use a host variable with the SQL-function
HttpGetClob() ?

Time for a call to IBM Roman - it should work.

But check your PTF levels first.

Did you look at the generated code and compare with the RPG version?
