Creating Tabular Data

  • Michael Coughlan


This chapter and the next return to the DATA DIVISION to explore more data-declaration concepts. In this chapter, I discuss how to create and manipulate tabular data. I compare and contrast COBOL tables with the arrays used in many other programming languages. Chapter 12 covers more advanced data declaration using the USAGE, REDEFINES, and RENAMES clauses.
