Hi all,
suppose in our cobol program we have declare index as
SET N1 to 1.(where N1 is an index)
we are increamenting the index value by SET N1 UP BY 1.
At certain stage we we wnt to see the value of N1.
Can we display the value of N1???????

Yes..We cant directly display INDEX with DISPLAY command.We need to use SET to move to a variable and display it.
