Hi,

I am migrating the below code in PL/1 to COBOL

PL/1
===

DCL PTR3 POINTER;
DCL CHAR4 CHAR(4) BASED(PTR3);
PTR3->CHR4='ABCD';

COBOL
=====

01 PTR3 POINTER in LOCAL STORAGE SECTION
01 CHAR4 PIC x(4) in LINKAGE SECTION

SET ADDRESS OF CHAR4 TO PTR3
SET PTR3 TO ADDRESS OF CHAR4
MOVE "ABCD" TO CHAR(4)

But i am getting SOC4 abend when i run in COBOL

Regards,
Bharat

How are you getting the address of CHAR4?
Is this a called subroutine?
Does the PROCEDURE DIVISION have a USING CHAR4?

SET ADDRESS OF CHAR4 TO PTR3

what does ptr3 contain when the above is executed.

Code:

SET ADDRESS OF CHAR4 TO PTR3
SET PTR3 TO ADDRESS OF CHAR4
MOVE "ABCD" TO CHAR(4)



the two set commands make no sense in cobol. also, I hope the CHAR(4) is a typo.
