Level 01 & 77 is the first diff between cobol-I and Cobol II.

you cannot use EXAmine kind of verbs in Cobol II.
Inspect can replace the same, this saves some time.


OS/VS Cobol pgms can only run in 24 bit addressing mode, VS Cobol II pgms can run either in 24 bit or 31 bit addressing modes.

Report writer is supported only in OS/VS Cobol.

USAGE IS POINTER is supported only in VS COBOL II.

Reference modification eg: WS-VAR(1:2) is supported only in VS COBOL II.

EVALUATE is supported only in VS COBOL II.

Scope terminators are supported only in VS COBOL II.

OS/VS Cobol follows ANSI 74 stds while VS COBOL II follows ANSI 85 stds.

Under CICS Calls between VS COBOL II programs are supported
