I am working on a migration project where we are converting all COBOL VS programs to COBOLE. POSITIONING is a statment in COBOLVS that is not supported in COBOLE. The equivalent in COBOLE is 'AFTER ADVANCING XX LINES'. The value of XX depends on what value is passed to the printer carriage return.
Below are a few values that I am aware of.
Carriage return Corresponding COBOLE code
1 AFTER ADVANCING PAGE
' ' AFTER ADVANCING 1 LINE
0 AFTER ADVANCING 2 LINES
- AFTER ADVANCING 3 LINES
Can some one let me know what would be the COBOL code if the value of Carriage return is 'C'?
