Hello modertors,

If possible can you please move all similar topics under a single thread.

For eg.. i have seen alteast 3 topics highlighting "AMODE and RMODE attributes in cobol" .

If you can bring all these under a single root it would be very helpful. This will avoid lot of searching time.

Thanks and Regards,

Hi McM,

I believe this is in reference to basically the same question asked by 3 people earlier "today".

Mainframe COBOL significance of 16MB line in COBOL
eeks Wed Mar 07, 2007

FAQ What are AMODE and RMODE parameters
Ganesh Kalam Wed Mar 07, 2007

Mainframe COBOL What is AMODE and RMODE in COBOL
KS Wed Mar 07, 2007

My guess is that they attended the same training or looked at the same interview questions.

What I like to see in this case is for the various forms of the question to be put in the thread with the answer so people using the various terms for the same question can find the answer.

Then remove the dup.

Yeah. For my forums/faqs, I require the person asking the question to state where he's looked and the search criteria he used. And, if it is a dup my answer is in the form of, "Search here using this term: 'xyz'".

But I basically agree it won't help some. I just offered it up for suggestion because it seemed like manual work was already being done to address these kind of posts and the suggestion was to change the process. Thought it was worth considering in case you hadn't.

I agree with this and updated it in our new Forum Rules...

Try to solve the problem yourself and make sure you have used the 'Search' facility before posting. You may be warned by the moderator, if your query already discussed and solved in our forums. If you are not satisfied with the previous solutions, post the query in the relevant/FAQ forum with your 'search' history
