Hi,

We know that if we give instream data we have to give accept statements in the COBOL program.

situation :

I had given the SYSIN data like following...

//SYSIN DD *
LINE1
LINE2
LINE3
LINE4
LINE5
LINE6
/*

now I want to read directly the LINE4 by skipping the first 3 lines in the instream data using the accept statement....

I want to know whether this can be done if so how........?

thx in advance.

pavan

hy i413678,

if you want to read SYSIN, you can do this also as for any
normal input file.
for your question:
each accept will give you one record, therefore accept 4 times
and you get the fourth record....

just note: with accept, it should be a record of 80 bytes.
