I have MFS where I coded this for a field and it looks okay...
Code:
OPRSEL   DFLD  POS=(07,23),LTH=01,EATTR=(HUL,GREEN)

but I want the green/underlined field conditionally depending what is in a different field. Is there are way to code Extended Attributes in COBOL like you can do with regular Attributes?

Thank you for your advice.

Try Googling EATTR and COBOL. The first hit I saw looked promising. “Dynamic modification of extended field attributes”.
