Don't know why you don't use sort to do this, far easier and quicker.

Yeah..as above friend said Sort is efficient solution for getting this job done..If you definetly want to use the Cobol.

Read the file using Perform until by incremanting the value of the varible and compare if the value reaches ther 200..If its below 200 do continue and read next record..If its more than 200 and below 300..process the record...You can change the value '200' and '300' by passing it from JCL.
