I created DATE, TIME and TIMESTAMP fields in a physical file. But I donot know how to populate the values to these fields from a COBOL program. When I include the file in a cobol program, the date field comes as FILLER PIC X(10), the tome field comes as FILLER PIC X(8) and the timestamp field comes as FILLER PIC X(26). I can receive values from the system for date and time and populate them to these fields. Is it the way to populate DATE and TIME fields in COBOL?
And as for the TIMESTAMP I do not know how to poplulate values this way also. Please suggect.
