hi,
My idea diffres from priya.I think PROCEDURE DIISION is also required, as that is the division which contains the code need to be executed.
as per me
Code:
ID DIVISION
PROGRAM-ID. TEST.
PROCEDURE DIVISION.

Correct me if i am wrong.

Hi,
I think kanak is correct. Procedure Division is needed.

Priya is correct..
just Identification Division and program ID is enough. Try for yourself.

Hi,
Priya is correct. Just Identification Division and Program-Id are enough

for a program to compile error-free.
