I am with you 10000% on this one. It shouldn't be a problem anymore. I
probably get 2-3 customers a week with issues and this is the cause. Now
with the older guys retiring and newer hires coming in that have no clue
about this "nuance" it's starting again.

Just don't use RQSDTA, then you don't have to worry about the
differences.
Besides RQSDTA is severely limited if you are wanting to use long
strings
or parameters.

CMD string can be 20000 characters.
RQSDTA is limited to 3000 characters.

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

I agree that using a command is the best way. However, is it different
if,
instead of using SBMJOB CMD(CALL PGM(MYPGM) PARM('parm1')) You do the
following instead: SBMJOB RQSDTA('CALL PGM(MYPGM) PARM(

I agree that using a command is the best way.

However, is it different if, instead of using

SBMJOB CMD(CALL PGM(MYPGM) PARM('parm1'))

You do the following instead:

SBMJOB RQSDTA('CALL PGM(MYPGM) PARM(''parm1'')')
