01 VAR1 COMP-2 VALUE 0.
MOVE 10.2115 TO VAR1.
DISPLAY 'VAR1 =' VAR1.
10.2115 is stored as .10211499999999996E 02 in OS VS Cobol
10.2115 is stored as .10211500000000000E 02 in ecobol.
Any reason why?
after udatingg first 110 rows, my job abends. now how do i
change my cobol program so that when i restart the Job it
will start updating from 111th row ( i.e in next run I
di=ont want to update those 110 rows which are already been
updated in the first run before job abend)
I have two sequential files, FILE-1 and FILE-2.
FILE-1 contains 2 columns(A,B) and FILE-2 contains 3 columns
(C,D,E).I want an output file, FILE-3 which has all five
columns with duplicates eliminated from column A.
01 NAME1 PIC X(13) VALUE "COBOL PROGRAMMING".
01 NAME2 PIC X(13).
now I want to display the value of NAME1 in reverse order
i.e value should be displayed as "GNIMMARGORP LOBOC"
HOW can I do that ??? please let me know if any one knows
I have PS flat file with 14 records. I want to read from
4th to 9th record and want to write those 6 records (4th
record to 9th record) to another PS file (output file).
there is no key defined in the input file. I just want read
a certain Consecutive records. can any one please give me
the procedure division Coding for this. I have coded the
below coding but the READ-PARA is performing only 1 time
even though I have 14 records in my input file (i.e FILE-1):
MOVE 0 TO I.
OPEN INPUT FILE-1.
IF CHECK-KEY1 > 0
DISPLAY "OPEN ERROR FOR FILE-1, CODE IS:" CHECK-KEY1
OPEN EXTEND NEWFILE-1
IF CHECK-KEY3 > 0
DISPLAY "OPEN ERROR FOR NEWFILE-1 COD IS" CHECK-KEY3
PERFORM READ-PARA THRU EXIT-PARA UNTIL EOF-REC = 'YES'.
DISPLAY " FINALLY OUT OF LOOP"
ADD 1 TO I
AT END MOVE 'YES' TO EOF-REC
IF I > 3 AND < 10
DISPLAY "NOT IN RANGE"
WRITE NEW-REC FROM FILE1-REC.
