Veera,

reg level 77 & 01.
This has no diff in MVS COBOL, VS COBOL II.

Inearlier versions of cobol.

if you declare an elimentary data item at level 01

01 ws-rec pic x(01).
01 ws-rec2 pic x(02).

in memory
xyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy (here y is blank nothing is stored in that).
xyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

where as if its at level 77
77 ws-rec pic x(01)
77 ws-rec 2 pic x(01)
in memory
XX

you can observe that memory is being saved.

however there is no diff in MVS Cobol or VS Cobol II
