Dear JobSeeker(?),

You can Use "Rs" as your currency symbol in IBM Cobol (COBOL for OS/390 & VM) and Enterprise COBOL. But this facility is not available in OS/VS COBOL and VS COBOL II.

In the following example, the picture character "$" indicates that the currency sign "Rs." is to be used:


Code:
SPECIAL-NAMES.

 Currency Sign is "Rs." with Picture Symbol "$".
      .
      .
      .
  77  INRVALUE      Pic $$,$$9.99.
      .
      .
      .
      Display "India Money Value: " INRVALUE.


In this example, if INRVALUE contained 1500.00, the display output would be:

Invoice amount is Rs.1,500.00
