It was explained to me struct are similar to classes in Java and can be created and extended to define an "object". I am reading and testing but not sure I understand how structures truly work.
Code:

  dcl 1 person,
            2 first_name    var char(50),
            2 last_name     var char(50),
            2 is_developer  var char(1);

  dcl london_emp    type person;
  dcl ny_emp        type person;
 


When I compile
Code:
ny_emp.first_name = "Joe"
, I get an error stating
Code:
the dot qualified reference ny_emp.first_name is unknown
.

Am I misunderstanding and structs cant be used this way?
Do I need to make a struct for both NY and London?

You have to use LIKE keyword in place of incorrect one: TYPE.
