Typically, reports are built programatically. Working-Storage is defined for headers, trailers, detail records, etc. Accumulators are defined to hold page counts, line counts, detail totals, etc. Logic is built to define page breaks, report breaks, total accumulations, etc. Optionally, there may be some feature built-in for the report formatting, such as selective font support, highlighting, underscoring, drawing, inclusion of images or logos and whatever else may be desired.

I've the same question to ask. When I compile the cobol source, I get the result like this, "REPORT" is a reserved word related to lanuage not supported by this compiler.

while doing compilation, pls give element type as 'COBOLIIRW'. If its IDMS report pgm give IDMSIIRW.

Otherwise report specific verbs may nt be detected by the compiler
