How to remove duplicates from a file in a cobol program.
As iam converting the easytrive code to cobol.
it has a code in easytrive
Code:
SORT COTBLSEL   TO COTBLSLS USING COTBL-GEIS-SEL BEFORE SCREENING 
                                                                   
SCREENING. PROC                                                   
   IF COTBL-NO-OF-SUBM-SEL GT 0 OR +                               
      COTBL-1-X-FOR-EA-PASS-SEL NE '     '                         
      IF COTBL-GEIS-SEL    GT PREV-COTBL-GEIS-SEL                 
         SELECT                                                   
      END-IF                                                       
   END-IF                                                         
      PREV-COTBL-GEIS-SEL = COTBL-GEIS-SEL                         
END-PROC 


in which it removes duplicates and sort the file so i want remove duplicates in the pgm itself and sort it

Why not move the record to a WORKING-STORAGE field, compare the NEXT record to the WORKING-STORAGE field, and release to the sort if the two are not equal? Isn't that just what the Easytrieve code is doing?
