Obviously, it's a logic problem.

Where is your program code? And why is this so urgent?

Hi Pradeep,

I hope you are the beginner in coding COBOL programs. Because many people faces the same problem at their learning phase.

Might be you coded your program as follows:

Performing a loop until EOF where the loop contains read (at end set EOF) and write. If this is the way you have coded your program certainly it will write the last record again. Even though it is reaching the end of file as there is another write following, it will write the last record again.

Instead of this read the file and then in the loop keep a write and read. So when the EOF is reached without writing it comes out of the loop.

And pradeep one small suggestion is better provide your code instead of simply telling about your problem.

Thanks,
Anu
