HI Vani,

D in 7th column of a COBOL Program denotes a Debugging Line.

What is a debugging Line....From the manual..
Quote:
A debugging line is a statement that is compiled only when the compile-time switch is activated. Debugging lines allow you, for example, to check the value of a data-name at certain points in a procedure.


Regards,

Priyesh.
