I gave this in working-storage

01 END-OF-FILE-IND PIC X.
88 END-OF-FILE VALUE 'Y'.
88 NOT-END-OF-FILE VALUE 'N'.

01 END-OF-LN01-FILE-IND PIC X.
88 END-OF-LN01-FILE VALUE 'Y'.
88 NOT-END-OF-LN01-FILE VALUE 'N'.

and after compilation, the error was like

PICTURE CLAUSE SPECIFIED FOR GROUP ITEM "END-OF-LN01-FILE-IND"

should all switches be declared together only, as a rule ? icon_question.gif

Hi Vinu,

Take a look at the stmt following
88 NOT-END-OF-LN01-FILE VALUE 'N'.

It's probably an 05 level stmt. If you have a pic in the 01 level you canfollow it with a non-01 levelstmt. E.g. this is illegal:


01 END-OF-LN01-FILE-IND PIC X.
88 END-OF-LN01-FILE VALUE 'Y'.
88 NOT-END-OF-LN01-FILE VALUE 'N'.
05 XXX PIC XX.

You'll get the error msg you described.
