Alissa,

I have a question , iam reading a FB file length of 123 bytes and passing in to a WS-group variable layout ,now requirement is need to read VB file & 126 bytes instead of FB file ...so in this case changes in program are
changing the Recording mode and length but do we need to alter the working storage group layout to include the 4 bytes for thr VB file??

1) DO NOT start an unrelated topic on the end of an existing topic. After 60+ posts I would have hoped that you have learnt at least the basic etiquette of the forum by now.

2) Why do you think that a COBOL related topic is better posted in the JCL forum.

Or at least search the "Mainframe COBOL" part of the forum on "VB files" - you'll get enough topics to start with what you are looking for.
