Seeing the questions, could you please define what you are refering to as "file handling"?

File handling we have random,sequential,dynamic methods... Cobol supports all the three techniques and it is helpful for the user when the requirement is based on file operations.

It differs because if the requirement is huge and the data is also large in nos then we go for database which is helpful and easy for accessing ... if you can differ between file and database then that will be the answer to your question.
