The syntax can be the same except an indexed array specifies "INDEXED BY".

Suggest you spend some time in the COBOL Language Reference manual: ... 0/CONTENTS?

The flashlight/tubelight near the top left provides search capability for the manual.

Suggest you bookmark or download the manual as you should use it often.
Hope this helps,
