hi,

I have a VS COBOL program to be converted to COBOL/370 version.

In the program the record (01 level) INTERFACE-RECORD is in a copy book that is of variable lenth [2393]. The record contains both numeric and alphanumeric fields.

COBOL/370 is not allowing the initialization of INTERFACE-RECORD.
In VS COBOL spaces are moved to INTERFACE-RECORD.

While executing a move statement in COBO/370 version:
MOVE INTERFACE-RECORD to ws-record [pic x(937)] S0C7 is encountered.

how do we solve this.

regards,
Sasi Patha.

Hi Patha,

I think you cannot move INTERFACE-RECORD to ws-record [pic x(937)] directly instead you need to move the individual variables one by one into ws-record.(define similar variables under ws-record of same size as that of interface-record)
I think this abend code SOC7 is comming becz u are moving variables of incompatiable type.

Regards,
Ds

hi,
I was able to debug the issue.

the interface-record was variable length because of a table having depending upon clause. The depending upon variable was not intitialized in the COBOL program. done it and successfully executed.

Thank u for reply.
regards,
Sasi Patha.

Hello,

Just want to add a bit of clarification -

The 0c7 was not caused by the move of unequal lengths. Group moves are alphanumeric and will not give an 0c7.

The abend was most likely due to using a "numeric" field that was corrupted by the mis-matched move.

Good catch finding your abend icon_biggrin.gif
