Reply with quote

Hi,

My Requirement is: I want to write a generic COBOL program to work for any record Length file (PS), I should not change the File Definition layout.

I want to read the input file and do some logic and write on to the output file. Both the input and output file are of same length. I need to maintain only one two SELECT statements.

Is there any way to handle different record Length file with a single COBOL program.

Please suggest any suitable approach /sample program for my requirement.

You can w/Ecobol but not w/the simplicity you want. Look at "environment variables" in the Ecobol manuals if you're interested.
