1) What does this have to do with the previous?
2) Probably because that is what the manual says and that is probaby because of the way the compiler is designed.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

occurs clause is used to repeat the fields in specific format not the records.. so it cant be coded in the 01 level
and occurs clause can have both pic and value clause depending on the situation.

Hello,

occurs clause is used to repeat the fields in specific format not the records..
What does this have to do with the topic? Depending on exactly what is meant, it is possibly also incorrect. . .
Hope this helps,

Hello,

y did u said like this ....
This is not some kiddie chat room - we don't use chat-room text/slang. Even beginners can communicate professionally.

how occurs clause works in 01 level
It does not work in 01 level. If code contains an OCCURS in an 01 level, it will not successfully compile.

Suggest you read more in the COBOL Language Reference:
http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/ ... 0/CONTENTS

The flashlight/tubelight near the top left of that page is the Search for the manual.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.
