Cobol Level numbers

Postby abhilash » Thu Oct 23, 2008 11:21 pm

Why the level numbers are from 1 to 49 and next level numbers are 66,77,88 ?

what about 50 - 65,67 - 76 and 78 - 87?

Hello and welcome to the forum,

Why the level numbers are from 1 to 49 and next level numbers are 66,77,88 ?
Because that is what was chosen by the committee who defined the language.

For more detail about level numbers try here:

For Enterprise COBOL:

Hope this helps,
d.sch.
