please respond quickly as needed in urgency.


as usual.... asking on a forum is not the best place if You have time issues

there is no agreement or commitment on providing replies,
furthermore people provide help on their own time and free of charge
so You should expect people to reply according to their priorities, not Your

it would be wise for You to read and meditate on
how to ask questions the smart way
here http://catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html
or .. for a more PC language
here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555375

both essyas are very useful to... forecast the comments and bashings You might receive :geek:
cheers

If the main module is calling the sub-module, did you try just passing it on the CALL USING to PROCEDURE DIVISION USING?

If that doesn't help, show us your definitions and relevant procedure code. Inside the Code tags, please.

Why do you need a quick answer? As enrico suggests, there are better places for that.

can i update the temporary table in a sub program if it is been created in the main program,

i havent stil written the main program.
the main program will contain the the declaration of the temporary table.
can i update the global temporary table in subprogram without creating it inside the sub program as in this case the main program

What do you mean by "creating" it?

There has to be a data definition. If that data definition is in the Linkage Section, then the storage for it has been acquired elsewhere.

Please show at least what you want to define.

So it was a DB2 table all along?

I suggest you find some example Cobol programs, at your site or using google or searching/browsing here, and compare to what you have.
