Is any other cobol division available other than default divisions like environment division, identification, data and procedure division. If yes what are they and where i can find information about it?

depending on the cobol that you are using, there are reference and user guides to all the cobol manuals listed under the manuals' link at the top of the page.

The manuals are also dealing with the same four divisions. I didn't find any extra divisions in the manual.

Hi Brindha !

ReportWriter is an old feature of Cobol. I used it in the early 19sixties.

COBOL Report Writer is COBOL's own built-in non-procedural facility for the production of printed output. It enables you to define and produce all the listings, reports, and displayed summaries that would normally be required from a COBOL application, but in far less time. It allows many more printed outputs, which might have been produced previously using stand-alone non-COBOL report generators, to be done in COBOL, because it reduces greatly the time and effort needed to code and test a COBOL program with printed output.

At IBM on the Web, you could find more information. Please have a look:
