Hi All,
New to mainframe forum - I have following requirement.
Copybook A
01 var-A.
05 var-1 usage pointer.
05 var-2 PIC X(10).
05 var-3 PIC x(5).
05 var-4 usage pointer.
Copybook B
01 var-B.
05 var-11 usage pointer.
05 var-22 usage pointer.
05 var-33 PIC X(15).

I need to set var-11 , var-22 of copybookB to var-1 , var-4 of copybook A.
I cannot use move statement so how I can achieve this ?

Did you ever try to read any document, or to use Google?

You are going to have many problems if you don't learn how to find things yourself. Look at the SET statement.
