I think u have to give
01 FILE1 pic x(20) value 'c:\nnnn\txt'
instead of
01 DD1 pic x(20) value 'c:\nnnn\txt'.

Am i right?

hi kiran,


you should not declare ws variable as DD1.since it will show some error during run time.

as exetrnal means the variable can be declared with any no of pic clause in different subroutines.
