Hello,

When you have an abend, anyone trying to determine the cause will need to see the abend info. You will probably not be able to post sufficent abend info via the forum due to time and space considerations.

I'd suggest you spend time at the testing facility and see if there are people there who work with students to resolve abends.

One thing from the code:
000386 IF PDD NOT NUMERIC AND PMM NOT NUMERIC AND PYY NOT NUMERIC
these should probably be OR rather than AND.

I believe there will be problems with the sort.
SORT SORT-FILE ON DESCENDING KEY S-NPAY
specifies s-npay as an amount (numeric), but when sort-records are released they are released from new-rec which does not have an amount as the first part of the record?
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

Hello,

If the "next" assignments require working code for the first one, the instructor might(should?) be able to provide a working model for use with the new requirements.

It is usually a very bad idea to require brand new students to build on their incomplete assignments to create their next assignment. In every class i've every worked with, there will be some people who do not complete the first assignments, but they still need to continue with the subsequent assignments.

As i've mentioned before, there should be someone available to talk with at the computer lab (the instructor would usually have hours, tutors/mentors, or other students working on the same/similar assignments).

When you start some new code or add new features to your existing code, i will try to review any errors or questions that you post. I am not able to re-work the first assignment.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

Hi Breentha,

I am about complete my course on cobol.
I'll bet that is a relief :)

What will be the best way to learn COBOL?
Attending training (like you have done) is one of the best ways.

very soon i will be starting work in cobol. Can you pls provide some guidelines on how to improve my programming skills in COBOL?
How well do you know your new project leader? Does your new group have some kind of internal training for new people? The best way i know to improve skills is repetition.

Good luck with your new work - If there are questions, someone should be here :)
