• Parameter structure COBOL vs RPG

    We have a COBOL program which can select up to 42 lines. The parameter structure is: 01 PARM PIC X(1024). 03 ID PIC X(4). 03 SELECTED OCCURS 42. 05 ITEM PIC X(4). 05 DESCRPT PIC x(20). I need to call this pgm in RPG. How do I best define the parameters without defining each individual field.

  • “.” in file name in COBOL

    I have a file "P.FILE". I want to define it in COBOL, eg, SELECT PFILE ASSIGN TO P.FILE, but the compiler won't accept it as it uses the period to mark the end-of-statement. I can't rename or override the file name, it has to be P.FILE. Any solutions would be greatly appreciated.
