I created an automagic page heading routine to center the title, grab the date/time, increment page#, etc.

The last piece is the report-id. Can someone suggest how to get this?

I would like it to be the spool file name.

In our shop, pgm name could be PAR01B for Program Accounts Receivable.

Spool file name could be RAR01B (1st R for report of course).

Can I retrieve the spool file name from a COBOL pgm? This spl file could have been over-ridden. I would like the spool file name that is currently open.

For example, pgm PAR01B could be used to create 3 different reports - RAR01B-A; RAR01B-B, and RAR01B-C.

The CL would look like:


In COBOL (or anything else), how can I retrieve the spool file name RAR01B-C ?
