I have cobol report generation program, for eg:- it generates hundred lines of report based on condition. Suppose while printing I don't want to print certain records and for that I have used some conditions.
But the problem is, in the DETAIL LINE (main record line layout or record layout) if I move '*' to flag variable, will it skip that record from printing ????
MOVE '*' to Variable of the record layout.
So to which position should I move asterick i.e '*' (1st position or 2nd position or 3rd postion ......), so that the particlular line won't be printed.
Generally for reports, we have some defaults... I believe... As I don't know much about reports, I am seeking your help
Plz guide me.
