Good morning. I thought I've seen a post on this, but can't find it. I have a program where I am passing 11 parms to it. Ten of the parms are 75A in length. From a command line, if I call the program without all 75 characters I'm seeing more than one of the parms in a single parm field. Is there any way around this? I'm thinking that all 75 chars have to been entered (blank fill) for each parm. Here's a snippet of code and a parm field in debug:

ddropSprocs pr extpgm('DROPSPROC')

d plib 10a

d psproc1 75a

d psproc2 75a options(*nopass)

d psproc3 75a options(*nopass)
