Just need a little help. I came across this question thru someone.
Suppose I have a file and that has jut 1 record which read and then written and the record at the time of writing is PIC 9(7). Now at the time of writing it if i give the value 123456 within quotes, will the program abend or not?
yup its same thruout the program its just that at the time of defining the variable in the input file i have not set the value. i am setting the value in the procedure division only and the value is "123456".
