In IBM Cobol
1) In IBM's Language Environment you can dynamically
acquire storage (look up HEAP in the manual). The storage
you acquire you can use as you like. Can be an array,
therefore a dynamic array. It is a "work-around" as dynamic
arrays are not directly supported.
2) 01 SINGLE-DIM-ARRAY
05 SDA-ITEM PIC X OCCURS 30.
A single-dimension array of thirty one-byte characters.
3) 01 MULTI-DIM-ARRAY.
05 MDA-FIRST-DIM OCCURS 20.
07 MDA-SECOND-DIM OCCURS 30 PIC X.
A multi-dimension array of 20 times 30 one-byte characters.

single dimensional array-
01 year grp.
05 month pic 9(2) occurs 12times.
multi dimensional array
01 year grp.
05 month occurs 12times.
05 weak occurs 4 times.
05 days pic x(4) occurs 7 times.
01 yy grp.
05 month pic x(4) occurs 10-12 times depending upon 'yygrp'.

Answer / mr.perfect
dynamic array is used to accept the value based on the
01 yy grp.
05 month pic x(4) occurs 10 times depending upon IDX
IDX is variable name
01 idx pic x(1).
