The internal representation is the same, whether it is a parameter, a variable in WORKING-STORAGE, or a variable in LINKAGE SECTION. Your guidance is to follow this link to the actual COBOL manuals and then you can read them. You will find out, on your own, what the internal representation of each is -- and you will then be on your way to becoming a professional IT person. http://www-01.ibm.com/software/awdtools ... s/library/

Hello and welcome to the forum,

If you find something in a manual that is not clear, post what you found and your doubt. Someone will be able to clarify.

If you run an experiment (i surely encourage this) and something unexpected happens, post what you tried and what happened.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

Do you really want us to help you with these 2 questions? If so READ THE FORUM RULES!! Start a new topic for each query. Someone will move these to the correct sections - if we can figure out what you mean.

How to initialise a db2-cics program
. What do you mean and in which language? Have you read the CICS and DB2 User Guides?

how to identify whether it is a cobol or db2 or cics
What is "it"????
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
