Hi All,
I have query with the indexed variable in COBOL with OCCURS clause.
How does system take care of the variable used for INDEXING in OCCURS clause? I want to know where it is defined in the system and what is it PIC clause?

eg: 01 TAB-NAME OCCURS 5 TIMES INDEXED BY I.

So, here where is I defined exactly when we are not declaring it in the COBOL program and what is its PIC clause?

Hi KKM,

Similar to RETURN-CODE, an INDEX is not explicitly defined. It's implicit definition is PIC S9(009) COMP. But I don't think it defines the table size limit, I think that is 8Meg.

Hi Jack,

In the following line, Which u posted

S9(4) USAGE BINARY VALUE ZERO

only two types of usage
1)Computationly(COMP,COMP-1,COMP-2,COMP-3)
2)Display (Which is default)

Usage Binary is not there(according to my knowledge).

Correct me if Iam wrong.
