Reply with quote

I need to build a 'n' level table, based on the parameter passed.

Ex. if parameter is 01 then table should look like
Level01 Occurs 100 times.

if parameter is 02 then table should look like
Level01 Occurs 100 times
Level02 Occurs 100 times

if parameter is 04 then table should look like
Level01 Occurs 100 times
Level02 Occurs 100 times
Level03 Occurs 100 times
Level04 Occurs 100 times

Kindly let me know, if this is possible in COBOL, Under IBM Mainframe environment.
Regards,
Shihas

Since the number of levels in a table is generated at compile time, you would have to define the table with the maximum number of levels at compile time.
At runtime, the passed parameter would inform the program how many of those levels are to be used.
In other words, no.
