please be honest toward Yourself and the rest of the forum audience please

reread carefully what You have written and tell if that is the proper way to ask for help
you are not asking for help you are requesting somebody to do the job for which You are getting paid
not even giving enough information about it

here is a hint ibmmainframes.com/viewtopic.php?t=22649

to make the most out of forum participation
it would be very useful for You to read and meditate on ...

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way
www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html

and most probably You might feel more comfortable asking on the sibling forum
www.ibmmainframeforum.com
targeted to beginners

As Enrico says, or at least implies, this is very much a beginners question. This forum is intended for people with considerable experience. In addition, all we got out your initial post is two inputs and three outputs. Nothing about the contents of the output data sets, or what analysis is performed by your proposed program.

Now I am not a Cobol programmer and rarely post in his section. I can not provide any guidance.

when I see posts like the one that started this topic I look at the TS profile
to see what kind of behaviour I/we might be facing

as expected ... I was classified as the bad guy

anyway the ts wrote

This is a very basic problem and most of them who have undergone COBOL would have gone through this.

Practice problem

Start with the other group please as suggested


www.ibmmainframeforum.com/ibm-cobol/file-match-merge-sample-code-t881.html

The best place for you is to start here

Once you have acquired the essential skills and yet you face issues in resolving the errors you could post here someone would be around to assist

Edit: The same link is available as sticky in Cobol section
