Hi

Display is way the computer saves the COBOL variables

Display usage is default usage and INDEX is used for indexed arrays and COMP for storing numeric data.

Hope u will find expls soon

pasumoorthy,
What kind of engineer would not first use the resources at hand to answer questions and solve problems?
Enterprise COBOL Language Reference has a section giving "exact definition with suitable examples" for the USAGE clause.
