While you can't DEFINE a data area in a subprocedure, you can USE a data
area in a subprocedure.  Same as for files.  Define the data area in the
main D specs of the module.

H nomain
D dtaara          s             10a   dtaara
D subproc         pr

p subproc         b                   export
C     *lock         in        dtaara
C                   eval      dtaara = 'new value'
C                   out       dtaara
p subproc         e
