I run a small plumbing and home repair service and would like to have a COBOL system developed that would on the main screen display the name of the company then have options for different screens like 1 customer info like name address and phone numbers and options to change or add customers. 2 for scheduling 3 for billing. I was wondering if this was something someone on this forum would be interested in developing. Thanks 1 post - 1 participant Read full topic ..read more

Efficient Data Processing

Hello. I am trying to modify an existing COBOL program that reads in data (all 100K+records) then moves that data into a sort file for processing. I would like to only process (sort) those records that meet a certain criterion. My understanding is this will make my program execute faster therefore making it more efficient. Currently the program reads all records then eliminates those records which meet the criteria. I am new to COBOL programming and am not sure what information to include to get helpful feedback. 6 posts - 3 participants Read full topic ..read more

Is it better to program COBOL using modules, or have everything you need in one code?

So I have recently entered what I would consider an “intermediate” level in the language, and I am making my own codes. At the moment I am planning out a program for record I/O (Adding to a record, amending record fields, deleting records etc etc). So now I would like to know if it is acceptable practice to make modules for each individual utility and use CALL to run them all together (so for instance I have a separate module for record creation and another for deletion and CALL them in a skeleton program). Using modules feels MUCH more intuitive to me personally and as far as I can tell it ha ..read more

Declaring FILE STATUS variable correctly

So I’m trying out my first COBOL project in 30 years. I’m trying to use XCode with Zowe, have my main frame account all working but getting File Status 90 when trying to open my file. I have read up on getting the second byte of the file status as it gives more detail, but am not able to define that PIC X(2) in order to get that secondary information. Every attempt I get this error: “FILE STATUS” data-name “WS-FILE-STATUS” was not defined as a two-character item. The data name was discarded. Since COMP-X isn’t available (which I saw in online examples), this was my last attempt: 01 WS-FIL ..read more
