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

Does the data in your parameters have trailing spaces? That is the key portion of the problem. If you fill up the parameters, then no problem. The usual fix for this is to create a command. Here is the official IBM page on the issue.<>

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
