Hi,

I have requirement to use Dynamic array in my cobol code.

I have declared my array as follows:

01 ARRAY-REC
03 ARRAY-CNT PIC S9(4) COMP.
03 ARRAY-FIELDS OCCURS 1 TO 2000 TIMES
DEPENDING ON ARRAY-CNT
INDEXED BY IN-INDX.
05 ARRAY-FLDS PIC X(1500).

This array will be used to store the records read from file. While reading the records i verify to the particular transaction then only i will store into this. So i don't know how much big table will be until or otherwise i read.

So can you tell me where to increment ARRAY-CNT or should i initialize with some count. Please clarify me.

As of now I am incrementing this count before each move to this Array.I have similar type of 3 more arrays. It is giving me insufficient storage error.

Can you help me out?

Thanks in advance
Noor

Under manuals listed in this forum refer to

VS COBOL II Programming Guide section 3.6.4.4 Complex OCCURS DEPENDING ON

Hope this helps.
