Hi,

I have few questions.

Q. Is dynamic allocation possible in COBOL? If yes, How?

Q. Can usage clause appear in FILE SECTION?

Q. To use SEARCH ALL, the table should be in sorted order. I am loading the table from one of the PDS members. The PDS member data is not in sorted order. How will I load the table in SORTED order? You should not sort in JCL.

Q. How would the number +1234 be stored if a PIC clause of PICTURES9(4) comp-3 were used?

Search this forum for dynamic allocation (or BPXWDYN) to find out all about COBOL dynamic allocation.

What does the manual say about USAGE clause in FILE SECTION?

COBOL has a SORT verb. See the manual for details.

What does the manual say about internal storage of COMP-3 values?
