Hii,

Can anyone suggest me how to concatenate two strings with 5 spaces in front.

The output should be first five characters spaces and the sting

I'm not a COBOL guy, but isn't there a STRING instruction for what you want?

Hello,

Yes, STRING should to what you want to do.

This is the Table of Contents for the COBOL Language Reference.

The flashlight/tubelight near the top left of the page is the Search function.
Hope this helps,
