I have a question on Cobol occurs clause.

i declared an internal table with occurs 2000.then when i am trying to add the data with more than 2000 it is accepting.

My question is i declared the internal table with occurs 2000 but it is creating more than 2000 when i am trying to add it, then what is the use occurs clause.

Thanks for making me aware the compiler options SSRANGE/NOSSRANGE. Now I got the answer.

The OCCURS clause defines the size of the table. Unless SSRANGE is being used, however, there is nothing in COBOL to prevent you from exceeding the table size by however many elements you want to. Eventually, though, you'll start writing to program storage (overlaying your code) or storage not associated with your program and will get an ABEND of one form or another.
