IT IS 26 BYTE LENGTH .first for setting it should be individual variable
01 WS-DB2-CURRENT-TS PIC X(26) VALUE SPACES.

EXEC SQL
SET :WS-DB2-CURRENT-TS = CURRENT_TIMESTAMP
END-EXEC

FURTHER you can move it to group variable

01 5 WS-CURRENT-TIMESTAMP.
10 WS-CURR-TS-CCYY PIC X(04) VALUE SPACE.
10 FILLER PIC X(01) VALUE '-'.
10 WS-CURR-TS-MM PIC X(02) VALUE SPACE.
10 FILLER PIC X(01) VALUE '-'.
10 WS-CURR-TS-DD PIC X(02) VALUE SPACE.
10 FILLER PIC X(01) VALUE '-'.
10 WS-CURR-TS-HH PIC X(02) VALUE SPACE.
10 FILLER PIC X(01) VALUE '.'.
10 WS-CURR-TS-MINS PIC X(02) VALUE SPACE.
10 FILLER PIC X(01) VALUE '.'.
10 WS-CURR-TS-SS PIC X(02) VALUE SPACE.
10 FILLER PIC X(01) VALUE '.'.
10 WS-CURR-TS-MILLISECS PIC X(06) VALUE SPACE. PIC X(26) VALUE SPACES.

MOVE WS-DB2-CURRENT-TS TO WS-CURRENT-TIMESTAMP.

hi smakkena,

The Work-storage varaible can be anything it can be a group/elementary.
What deepa said is absolutely correct.

Things group she was doing for display purpose.it is optional to you.
