Yes - as long as it was defined as a MODS in the called routine.

I’m assuming you also know that you must set the occurrence to 1 before you do the call. This is one of the reasons I hate MODS as parms. DS Array is much safer.

Jon,
Thank you,
So in the prototype, I would define the entry using LikeDs(MODS) and in the
receiving pgm it would be able to access all occurrences?
D My_Pgm extpgm('xxxx')
D Parm_Ds likeds(MODS)

D MODS Ds Occurs(90)

Define the parm as LIKEDS(xxxxxxxx)

Easy.

There is zero need to play with pointers these days for this kind of parm.

A DS array would be better of course and could actually be passed as a
MODS since internally they are the same. But it would also use LikeDS so no
difference there.

All,
From an RPGLE Free Format program, I need to call another RPGLE program
that accepts a MODS as one of its parms. Since this program is in Fixed
Format as are all other programs calling it, they just pass the MODS as a
parm with no problem.
In Free format, I need to define the call via a prototype, and can not
determine how to prototype the MODS.
Is there a way to do this or do I need to use the Fixed Format CALL
op-code?

TIA,
