Hi,

I have one sequential file with records:
Student id, Name, Class
01 Atul 5
02 Aman 6
03 Rahul 8

I want to read this flat file and put this data in DB2 table from COBOL.

Note: DB2 table have already column with student id, name and class.

Can you please suggest me logic to read file and insert record in db2 table?

The required logic of operations is as follows:

1. Read the input data into COBOL internal variables.

2. Insert the data from COBOL variables into a new DB2 table record.

That's it.

I explained to you the LOGIC of operations, as you asked.

The forum is not a place to explain SYNTAX.

Syntax must be learned by reading manuals, and/or attending classes. In case any particular detail is not clear, you may ask the forum about this particular misunderstanding.

Furthermore, the "syntax explanation" in your understanding is equivalent to: "please, give me a ready-to-use solution, for me to copy-and-paste it into my project I am paid for".

This is NOT what this forum is supposed to be.

locked. Please Google or read manuals how to code for READ and INSERT syntax.
