COBOL- Index and Subscript

Can you pass an Index to another COBOL Program, via LINKAGE SECTION?
No, an INDEX is not a Working-storage area. It is maintained by the System.

You can only send the data in Working-storage areas(Rough-work area) or in File Input-Output Areas to a COBOL Program.

You can pass a Subscript to another COBOL Program.
