Postby jvinoth » Thu Aug 22, 2013 12:54 pm

Hi,

Can anyone please help on the below issue. Can we use occurs depending on in Redfine clause. Please find below the code.


01 VAR-0 PIC 9(2) VALUE 0.           
01 STRUCT-0 PIC X(26).               
01 STRUCT-1 REDEFINES STRUCT-0.     
    03 VAR-1 PIC X(2).               
    03 VAR-2 OCCURS 10 TIMES         
                DEPENDING ON VAR-0   
                PIC X(1).           
    03 VAR-3 PIC X(14).   



Thanks....

Code'd

Have you actually tried it? And if not, shouldn't you do so before posting here?

You have been asked before to use code tags when posting code, data or anything looking like a screen shot or requiring a fixed pitch font. If you cannot be bothered to use the code tags why should anyone be bothered assisting you?
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

This is a HELP forum, not a READ-THE-MANUAL-FOR-YOU forum. Your question is rapidly, and accurately, answered in the COBOL Language Reference manual. Since there is a link to that manual at the top right of this page, you can find -- and read -- the manual yourself.

The answer can be located easily. but despite that, the equivalent effect can be achieved.

What are you trying to do - in words, what are you trying to get done with the code.

When you call everything "struct" and "var" rather than anything meaningful, I'm not sure it is such a good idea to attempt anything other than the very simple, so you'd best have a good reply.
