Hi,
Please help me in getting answer for a question related to file processing in a COBOL program and create an output file. Input file has 10 message fields, i need to write an output records per message. i.e. if file has data for only message1 field then need to write one o/p records, if file has data for message1,message2 then need to write two o/p records and so on. means every time i need to check message field and write an o/t record if message fields has data. file layout is below-

source x(3)
Account number length x(15)
id length x(8)
ccode x(3)
message1 x(30)
message2 x(30)
message3 x(30)
message4 x(30)
message5 x(30)
message6 x(30)
message7 x(30)
message8 x(30)
message9 x(30)
message10 x(30)
