Hello, Can anyone explain about the significance of 1. Collating sequence in OBJECT-COMPUTER para 2. PROGRAM COLLATING SEQUENCE 3. EBCDIC COLLATING SEQUENCE

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hello…

All clauses of the OBJECT-COMPUTER paragraph apply to the program that explicitly or implicitly specifies them. They also apply to any program contained within that program.
The MEMORY SIZE clause is for documentation only. It has no effect on program execution.
The PROGRAM COLLATING SEQUENCE clause causes the program to use the collating sequence of alpha-name to determine the truth value of nonnumeric comparisons in:
Relation conditions
Condition-name conditions
Report description entries, the CONTROL clause
The PROGRAM COLLATING SEQUENCE clause also applies to nonnumeric merge and sort keys. However, the COLLATING SEQUENCE phrase in a MERGE or SORT statement takes precedence over the PROGRAM COLLATING SEQUENCE clause.
If there is no PROGRAM COLLATING SEQUENCE clause, the program uses the NATIVE collating sequence.
The SEGMENT-LIMIT clause is for documentation only.
