We do not do 'urgent' (read the rules).
How much are you willing to pay for someone to write this programs - or series of programs - for you?
What have you tried - where are you stuck?
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
Regards
Nic

EMP-TOT-SALARY IS VARIABLE THAT I DEFINED
EMP-SALARY IS IN INPUT FILE EMPLOYEE SALARY
TL-SAL IS ALSO VARIABLE THAT I DEFINED
SALARY IS OUTPUT FILE EMPLOYEE RECORD------WILL THIS LOGIC WORK----MY DESIRED OUTPUT IS TOTAL 'TL' DESIGNATION EMPLOYEE SALARIES ALL TOGETHER

LOGIC:
EMP-TOT-SAL = EMP-TOT-SAL + EMP-SALARY
MOVE EMP-TOT-SAL TO TL-SAL
MOVE TL-SAL TO SALARY

No.

You have no conditional logic.

What you will get in SALARY is a "running total" (the total so far when the move was done for that output record).

NicC asked what the designation was, and you didn't reply.

You either need a table of designations/amount for designation or you need the file pre-sorted on designation. You'll need at least one IF either way.

Yes, I have few designations like AM,BM,CM,DM and their salaries in a given input table.
I defined these deignations in my ws-section.
I want to calculate total salary of employees per designation wise in sorted order

You make a table with designation and sum total in each entry.

Accumulate sum total per current designation. When designation changes, put the previous designation and sum into the table. Initialise sum to current value and store new designaiton. Continue until end.

At the end of all your input you will have a table of sums by designation, which you can do whatever you then want with.

If you input is not sorted on designation you will need to do the accumulation in the table, have found a matching entry for designation or, if no matching entry, create a new one.

if current-designation equal to previous-designation
move previous-designation to designation of next entry in table
move salary-value to salaray of next entry in table
move current-designation to previous-designation
move current-salary to salary-value
else
add current-salary to salary-value
