Code:
PRT-TEST-RTN.                                                       
     MOVE 0             TO Z.                                       
     MOVE SPACE         TO PRT.                                     
     MOVE TEST-PTN      TO PRT-REC.                                 
     WRITE PRT AFTER TOP-OF-PAGE.                                   
 PRT-TEST.                                                           
     ADD 1 TO Z.                                                     
     IF Z > 27  GO TO PRT-TEST-EXIT.                                 
     WRITE PRT AFTER 2.                                             
     GO TO PRT-TEST.                                                 
 PRT-TEST-EXIT.                                                     
     EXIT.


I do not understand the "write prt after 2".

Thank you.

Are you creating report thru cobol? If yes, go thru the manual for REPORT SECTION.

Which version of COBOL you are talking about? COBOL85 with REPORT WRITER?

We use enterprise cobol and there is no REPORT SECTION exists, still it is valid COBOL statement.
Code:
WRITE PRT AFTER 2.

This is equivalent to -
Code:
WRITE PRT AFTER ADVANCING 2 LINES

Correct me

That code has nothing to do with with the REPORT SECTION it is just plain cobol.
