Causes ACCEPT statements to be read from a specified file.


>>-.---.-.-------INDD--"fname rsize rtype"----.---><
   +-/-+ +-------INDD--"fname rsize"----------+


Name of file to be read for the specified ACCEPT statements. When this parameter is not specified the name used is SYSIN.
Size of the data records in the file. When this parameter is not specified the size used is 80 bytes is used.
Either L for Line Sequential (Micro Focus dialect) or R for Record Sequential (mainframe dialects). When this parameter is not specified, L is used.


Default: NOINDD
Phase: Syntax check
$SET: Initial


When INDD is specified, all format 1 ACCEPT statements which either have no FROM option or specify FROM SYSIN (or the mnemonic-name associated with SYSIN) are transformed into READ statements, reading from a file with the specified external filename.

The filename can be mapped onto physical filenames in the same way as other files with external filenames; that is, by using environment variables or the External File Mapper.

If you specify this directive in an enterprise server environment, any corresponding catalog attributes will override the rsize and rtype parameters; therefore, you will also need to update the catalog attributes to preserve the behavior set by the directive.
