Hi,

One of my Pl/1 copybook is having below fields. I need to create a COBOL copybook for the same. Please advise

DCL 1 WK_GROUP;
5 WK_NUMBER FIXED DEC;
5 WK_SIM FLOAT DEC;

I referred PL/1 manuals to find FIXED DEC will occupy 5 bytes, where FLOAT DEC occupy 6 bytes. But not sure how I can define these in Cobol

Also, please let me know what the conversion for FIXED BINARY and FLOAT BINARY

Kindly suggest if this need to be posted under Mainframe Cobol section...

Sudhaaa

Suggestion: use the link at the top of the page to get to the PL/I manual to determine the default attributes for FIXED and FLOAT variables. Then use the same link to access the COBOL manual to determine which COBOL attributes are needed to match the PL/I attributes.
