01 WS-COPYBOOK X(8).

01 BATCH-COPY C1234567.
01 ONLIN-COPY C1234567.

In my procedure division I'm using following statements.
IF Batch
MOVE 'BATCH-COPY' to WS-COPYBOOK
ELSE
MOVE 'ONLIN-COPY' to WS-COPYBOOK.

DISPLAY "NAME : " NAME of WS-COPYBOOK.

Will the display statement will work (RUN TIME) for BATCH-COPY and ONLIN-COPY copybooks?
Do we need to change any compiler options to work this one?

Hello,

If i understand what you are trying to do, no you cannot do it. . .

COPY expands copied source during the compile of a program, not the execution.

If you explain just what you want to accomplish and include an example, someone may have a suggestion.

If i misunderstand, please clarify.

you can start by explaining what this is:

01 BATCH-COPY C1234567.
01 ONLIN-COPY C1234567.

not a valid syntax for anything.

Dick Brenholtz, this is typo error.

Original Code will be

01 BATCH-COPY.
COPY C1234567.

01 ONLIN-COPY.
COPY C1234567.

But i got the answer, thanks "d.sch.".

You are just moving a name to a variable. It is just a plain move. This will not move the copy book values.

Let us know whether you want to move the name of the copybook or Copy book values.
