Issue/Introduction

In SSM V2 implementation, it is possible to code in the ACTION tables symbols like "&PARM" , "&CMDCHAR" , which are fetched from the STC table during the execution.

How to manage these symbols when moving to SSM V3 ?

Moving to SSM V3, it is still possible to use the variables in the MVSCMD actions in the same way used in SSMV2.
