Accubench is a Micro Focus product, presumably something to do with ACUCOBOL, which Micro Focus purchased a while ago. It is not an IBM Mainframe product, and this is an IBM Mainframe forum, so I doubt you'll get much luck here. You'll need to find another forum for your question.

There are manuals out there which will cover most of what you need syntax-wise but...they will not cover such things as mouse and screen handling. You will have to fins a manual specific to the compiler that you are using.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
