Hi,

I want to move a Table Index to a normal WS-Variable.

E.g.

MOVE TAB-IDX TO WS-IDX.

It might be possible that Index will go up to 13K.
Is it possible to do so?

If yes, Please suggest how.....and if not please provide any other way to do so....

- Jamirahmad.

Use SET instead of MOVE.

Is it like below specified :

SET TAB-IDX TO WS-IDX.

It will SET value of TAB-IDX to WS-IDX. Is it correct?

If not could you please provide me an Example? That will be Helpful for me.

examples are found in any cobol manual under procedure division, look for 'SET'.

Hi,

Following can be used for this

Code:

01 WS-INDX            USAGE IS INDEX.

   SET       WS-INDX       TO   INDEX.



Variables with USAGE display cannot be used to hold Value of an index.

you have provided a very good example of why I told jamirahmad to read the manual.

I guess this was the original question. Was it Dhruv2000's solution that worked? I bet it was not what you wanted. In fact that post is completely irrational.
Dick's post after Dhruv2000's post was SARCASTIC.. You should have known that.

We encourage newbie's to look in to the manual because it will help them in solving their problems on their own. Spoon feeding won't do any good.
It is a pity that mainframers like you can not take a look in to a manual.
Jamir and Dhruv,
Please access this link and get your concepts right.

Thanks for the update. I am glad to get this information. This is indeed a good link.

But it will be good if you post your answers than commenting someone elses.

Thanks!

I have already answered the question, look at my first post in this thread.
And in my last post I have given the link to fine manual. What else do you expect?
If you didn't see my post, then it's not my problem.

Why didn't you just provide the link in the first post?
Use SET instead of MOVE.

And, will you two quit 'snipe'ing at each other.....
