sorry to disillusion You,
both answers are ... NO, NO

But, if You know the procedure to which Your program belongs,
You might have a starting point for a source search

Do you remember the load library name, which 'tool' do you use for link-editing of COBOL development programs?

By procedure I was' nt meaning the JCL procedure..
I was referring to the application..
In banking they would be something like..
current accounts, deposits, loans, ...

If You think it could help You to do some backtracking
byfinding out the compilation/link date You could run an
"AMBLIST" on the load module

see this post on how

Anuj,

I do remember the load library name.here we don't use tools to link-editing the Cobol development programs,instead we link-edit through running jobs manually.since i have link-edited the program long time back the jobs are deleted from my spool.

Hello,

The manual compile/link job is your "tool". Does your system use "standard" compile jcl? Many organizations use "common" source libraries and your program is hopefully in one of them. If you have some personal datasets that contain source, you might look there as well.

As has been discussed in the forums before, retrieving source from a load module is almost always not feasible.
