CICS is a transaction processing system and hence is oriented towards small amounts of data, typically a screen (or few screens). CICS programs usually present data and wait for user interaction before continuing. Batch programs handle massive amounts of data (sometimes millions of records) without any user interaction.

Nothing to do with Cobol. Moving to a more appropriate part of the forum.
(Prino - I think he was - under a slightly different user id - with this one he hasn't been quite so silly - but still does not do his homework before posting :( }
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
