Thanks for your reply Alan
What you described, explains why my test is working
However - that is different than what was described in this particular blog
Variable greater than 32 byte length will be truncated to 32 byte
(including the trailing spaces)

I will leave my program the way it is

Subject: [EXTERNAL] Re: Passing a parameter to a CLLE program in SBMJOB

32 bytes is how many bytes the Cmd Processor will allocate at a minimum
each time, not the maximum length. You can pass a char up to 32,767 or
somewhere in that limit.

The command processor allocates 32 bytes to try to prevent you from walking
into the next piece of memory so for example the processor did not do this.
You pass 5 bytes but try to read 10. You would then get garage from the
next field in memory.

Hi everyone
We are on V7r3
I am testing a program that passes a parameter into a CLLE within SBMJOB
It wasn't until I was testing that I remembered there was a limit as to
the size of the parameter in this instance

Please see this web page

This blog was from January 2018. Has that number increased from 32 to a
larger size?
The parameter that I am passing is 40 characters and it seems to be
working okay

As always - all answers gratefully accepted
