    A COBOL program structure consists of divisions as shown in the following image − A brief introduction of these divisions is given below − Sections are the logical subdivision of program logic. A section is a collection of paragraphs. Teach Yourself COBOL in 21 days, Second Edition Next chapter Table of Contents: Introduction Week 1 at a Glance Day 1 - Your First COBOL Program Day 2 - Using Variables and Constants Day 3 - A First Look at Structured COBOL Day 4 - Decision Making Day 5 - Using PERFORM, GO TO, and IF to Control Programs Day 6 - Using Data and COBOL Operators.

    We can use 30years older COBOL code till now and run without any changes in modern Mainframe server. COBOL is a procedural language and works well in legacy applications. Lots of COBOL programmers are retired and this is a great opportunity for a fresher to learn COBOL to land a dream job.   Cobol is good at dealing with files, and processing records. Original Cobol programs didn't always have the facility to obtain a user specified filename, and as such relied on hard-coded filenames. One way of bypassing this is to use dynamic filenames. Consider a file called containing the following information: Skywalker Ackbar .

    Using Cob. You start and control the Cob utility using the cob causes the files named on its command line to be processed with the aim of producing modules that can be linked or run.. There are five basic types of executable COBOL program; the cob command provides a straightforward means of creating a mixture of any of these types of program. Indexed files are the most complex form of COBOL file which can be handled directly by COBOL syntax. Records in an indexed file are identified by a unique user-defined key when written. Each record can contain any number of user-defined keys which can be used .

In COBOL, ‘OPEN’ is used to open a file. After the successful open of the program, it can perform READ/WRITE/REWRITE/UPDATE/DELETE functionality.

In the end, we should close using CLOSE operation. After successful execution of the program, all the files used are automatically closed but it.

This is identified as relative record number. Visit COBOL books section in this site for good books. If Open is successful, then only further operations are possible on a file.

Only after opening a file, the variables in the file structure are available for processing. FILE STATUS variable is updated after each file operation. Syntax OPEN "mode" file-name. Here, file-name is string literal, which you will use to name your file.

Companies will have master files in application areas such as payroll, accounts receivable, accounts payable, production, sales, and inventory.

Batch processing is the most common way of processing these files. In most companies, a master file will be stored on a magnetic disk. The features of magnetic media such as disk that make it ideally suited for storing master file data include the following.

COBOL is an acronym which stands for Common Business-Oriented Language. The US Department of Defense, in a conference, formed CODASYL (Conference on Data Systems Language) to develop a language for meeting business data processing needs which is now known as COBOL.

COBOL is a standard language that can be compiled and executed on various machines. Get this from a library. Business file processing!: COBOL, CICS, and SQL. [James Bradley]. In this chapter we expand on the description of display files given in Chap "Interactive Processing."As you recall, record formats are defined in a display file to define an entire screen or a portion of a screen.

One of the most common types of record formats used in interactive applications is the list screen, or work with screen, shown in Figure Section 3: COBOL for working with files. In this section, you’ll learn how to work with the three types of COBOL file organizations: sequential, indexed, and relative.

Because file processing (not database processing) is a major feature of many mainframe programs, these are essential skills for COBOL programmers. Each chapter contains a zip file that, when extracted, consists of one or more projects that you can open using either the Visual Studio or Eclipse editions of Visual COBOL.

For Visual Studio users, we included a solution file that will load all the projects forming the example. THE SELECT STATEMENT The SELECT statement selects a file for processing by defining a system file-name and assigning a COBOL file-name to that file.

The COBOL file-name is referenced in the DATA DIVISION to designate the input or output area to be used by the file.COBOL Tutorial studay material - sample cobol sequential file writing program. RAMESH KRISHNA REDDY: IDENTIFICATION DIVISION.

WS-INFILE IF WS-INFILE-SUCESS DISPLAY "FILE OPEN SUCCESSFUL" ELSE DISPLAY "FILE OPENING ERROR" GO TO AEXIT END-IF.By default, cob processing ends when all COBOL source files have been compiled for animation; that is, a dynamically loadable intermediate code file (with ) and an Animator file (with ) have been created.

Other end points can be specified by using cob options (see the section cob Flags later in this chapter).
