Hi prasad,

If, as your pseudo name implies, you enjoy mainframes, why not look up intrinsic date functions for the compiler you're using (I assume it's COBOLII or later - click the "manuals" tab on the top line of this panel) and attack the problem yourself?

You'll learn a lot more than if you relied on us to do it for you. We'll be happy to help you w/any ques you may have.

w-s.

01 DOBdate.
02 Day1 pic 9(2).
02 Mon1 pic 9(2).
02 Year1 pic 9(4).

P-D.
if (day(CurrDate) - day(DOB))/365 > 65

compute Mon1 = Mon1 + 1

End-if.

Hi nrsmca

the logic is fine
but i am not sure that this will work exactly
i suppose we forgot to take care of the leap years in between
