Hi all,

I was wondering if somebody could send me some sample copybooks with varying degree of complexities.

Thanks,

Yogesh

Hi Yogesh,

Here's 1 you don't see often:

Cbk name is transrec.
Code:

01  :pre-:trans-rec.
    05  :pre-:trans-type    pic x(002).     
    05  :pre-:trans-amt     pic x(002).     
    05  :pre-:trans-date    pic x(002).   
    05  :pre-:trans-acct    pic x(002).   

In COBOL pgm code:

copy transrec replacing ==:pre-:== by ==inv-==

This tells the compiler to chang the pprefix in the cbk to inv-.
Another user could use sinv- for his/her purposes. It can also be used for both input and output files to make the field names unique.

I usually include the "-" between the colons so that I can elliminate the prefix if I have a mind to. I.e. ==:pre-:== by ====. You may need to separate those 4 =s w/a space. In fact check all the syntax here. I don't have a manual handy and I'm quoting from memory.

As I say, the usual caveats and copouts apply.
