Hi Priya,

This is Pointer, I mean in PL1 we have Pointer facility, so you can not convert this to COBOL code. (fortunately COBOl doesn't have pointers :-)).

May be I am unable to explain everything clearly , but we can not convert it to the COBOL code.

Thanks and please let me know if I am wrong.

try declaring these in working storage :

01 MYSTRING PIC X(100) VALUE 'THIS IS MY DATA'
01 MYPOINTER USAGE IS POINTER

and then in procedure division :

SET MYPOINTER TO ADDRESS OF MYSTRING.
