since IBM is discontinuing support for COBOL II, I would suggest migrating straight to e-cobol.

regardless, I would refer to the release documents for COBOL II, which will guide you.

Reply with quote

Dear Rajesh,

If am right, there are more than 150+ differences between COBOL and COBOL II. But for the usage purpose, the impact would be on maximum 10 commands. I had worked on a similar project a year back though I forgot the basic differences that needs to be streamlined.

For example,
1.EXAMINE should be replaced with INSPECT
2. CURRENT-DAY, TIME-OF-DAY replaced by DATE, TIME which are dynamic calls made by the COBOL II compiler
3. removal of REMARKS

You can find many websites which can guide you through.

Regards,

AC
