HI eswar123,
U can use pointer concept in cobol to use the Set address.

Eg:
In Linkage section

01 ws-pointer usage is Pointer
01 ws-var1 pic x(05).
In procedure divison
U can assign the address of ws-var1 to Ws-pointer variable.
Ws-pointer which holds the starting address of ws-var1. using

Set address of ws-var1 to ws-pointer.

Hope this gives u a idea how to use SET address.
