SQL CODE.


Cheers,
Gops

Hi,

We can not use embedded SQLs like
'SELECT * FROM.....' in a Cobol program.

this will not give any Error but if the Number fields in the table get modified (new field added or a field is deleted) it'll cause problem in the DCLGEN host variables.

Regards,
Mamata.

Hello

Generally when you want to use queries that selects more than one rows, you need to use cursors.

you need to do in this order DECLARE, OPEN, FETCH, CLOSE.
