how to retrive, how many of the employees working in a company starting with the name A (eg:-arun,aakash likewise) from a emolyee file using mvs cobol. without using any sql or jcl its should be done with pure cobol.
:( anybody plz help me :(
Suppose if the ws-name is PIC X(9) redefine it as ws-initial as PIC X(1) and ws-remainder PIC X(8) .So in the cobol program compare
Hence the names with starting letter 'A' could be retreived.
