Re: How exchange parameters between mainframe jobs2004-04-28T13:23:04Z in response to SystemAdminHi Meri,
For comunicate two mainframe jobs using parameters you must use the option Edit > Job Properties > Parameters.
Your first job need write all parameters into a Flat File.
After that, in your second job, you need to input in a option above a File Name writed, Cobol DD name and all the parameters (parameter name, SQL type, length ...).
Your second job, during the execution will read a Flat File writed to capture the parameters first.
You can use all the parameters into Transformer stage.
