For one of my requirement, I have to compare the dates in the following manner.
From the data base I will be taking date field (for ex: DATE-A).
I have to compare this field with current-date - 1year in cobol.
That means if the date in date field is less than the current-date - 1year
i ahve to process the record.
Can anyone let me know how to get the dates which are having past 1 year in cobol.
The current date is available in COBOL, and subtracting one from the year is a simple action.
The functionability you want is also available in the where clause of the database select without needing COBOL to calculate it.
