Hi,
What does this statement means.

Move Xyz-var1(w0-sub) to xyz-var2
xyz-var3 (w0-sub).

where XYZ-var1/2/3 and w0-sub all are variables.
This code is written in Cobol.

Regards.

Vaibhav,

It doesn't seem a valid MOVE statement. You should get an error at compile itself.

Pls describe the structure of these variables.

Regards,

Priyesh.

Vaibhav,

In your program, you should find some code like:

Code:

   
        05  XYZ-VAR1               PIC S9(9)   OCCURS 10 TIMES.
        05  XYZ-VAR2               PIC S9(9).
        05  XYZ-VAR3               PIC S9(9)   OCCURS 10 TIMES.
        05  WO-SUB                 PIC s9(2).


        MOVE 2                 TO WO-SUB.
        MOVE XYZ-VAR1(WO-SUB)  TO XYZ_VAR2
                                  XYZ-VAR3(WO-SUB).


In the case above, variables XYZ-VAR1 and XYZ-VAR3 are defined as COBOL tables with 10 occurrences of the variable.

The move above will move the value in the 2nd occurrence of XYZ-VAR1 to the variable XYZ-VAR2, and to the 2nd occurrence of variable XYZ-VAR3.

The move above is equivalent to:

Code:


        MOVE XYZ-VAR1(2)       TO XYZ-VAR2.
        MOVE XYZ-VAR1(2)       TO XYZ-VAR3(2).



Dave,

The code is valid, the value in one source variable is getting moved to multiple destination variables.

move a to b1
b2
b3
This will move value in a to b1, b2, b3.

Similiarly you can code statements like

initialize a
b
c

hi,
this statement means that
the element of table "xyz-var1" with position "w0-sub" in it
will be moved to 2 variables.
First to separate variable "xyz-var2"
and second to the element of table "xyz-var3" with position "w0-sub" in it.

For other is nesessary to know
what is the data-structure like.
