When posting data from a 3270 screen, use copy/paste and then "Code" the screen data. Do not do any typing - copy/paste & Code will preserve the alignment.

what i mean is does these procedures lie in libraries that are specified by DBA at the time of installation? Some would have been set up as part of the installation. Others might have been added later. What kind of dataset naming standards exist or is everything "whatever"? Some places use QMF some...

You used a cobol compiler because the code is cobol source. You appear to be somewhat lost: then how can i specify a disk file in cobol program? i have seen in some books they have given disk file as input/output. The SELECT and ASSIGN along with the FD is how you specify a file in a cobol program. ...

Then you need to see if the called function gave a return-code that says there is a problem. . .

Is there some other process that successfully calls a c function? If this is the first attempt, it is possibly not set up correctly. . .

It is a bad practice to use SHR for sequential input and output files (unless the dataset is a pds and then there can be problems).

Well-managed systems will not allow this to be run in production.

You already have this topic active in another forum. . .

If we find another topic double-posted you will most likely be banned from that forum. . . :(

Any given question should only be posted one time. As most of the same "seniors" answer most forums, this just wastes their time.

Well, you need to post more than "it didn't work". . .

What happens? Failure to compile/link? Abend? Unexpected/undesired results?

Post any informational or diagnostic information generated by the problem process.

i gave 'C:\filename.txt'
Why? This is not valid mainframe syntax. Are you actually running on a mainframe?

How will the program be executed? Post the execution JCL.

The cobol program on the mainframe cannot automagically grab a file from "your disk".
