Most importantly, why are you concerned about EVALUATE versus IF? CPU utilization is one of the last things to worry about these days when machines are executing tens of millions of COBOL instructions in one second of CPU time. If you think the job is using too much time, then you look at it -- otherwise, you don't really need to think much about it.
