As far as I know, LINK is not a COBOL statement.

Hi,

CALL statement used in COBOL program

for ex
Code:
CALL 'SUBPROG' USING VAR1, VAR2.



LINK statment is used in CICS statement

for ex:
Code:
           EXEC CICS
                      LINK ('SUBPROG')
                      COMMAREA(------------)
                      LENGTH( LENGTH OF ---------)
           END-EXEC.
