Hi all,

I have 2 programs, one of them is the Main program and another is the sub-program.

Both the programs were coded only till DATA DIVISION.

Probably some silly test by someone who knows nothing about programming but looked in the manual and found the 'IS COMMON' phrase of the ID statement in E-COBOL.
