i did not worked on this cobol... some info about this....

Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) is a feature of Microsoft Windows.
It enables a pplication to load and send messages to any application registered with the os as an OLE class or server.

Using Object COBOL, you can send messages to an OLE object. In this case we can call the COBOL program as OLE client.

suggestion : while posting creating new topic, make sure, you give correct subject.
Please dont use words like doubt etc...

Just for my .02 cents..

OLE Automation provides a high degree of interoperability and integration between applications, enabling diverse applications to work together without each application needing to understand how the others work. By providing support for OLE Automation, Visual Object COBOL applications can now exploit functionality existing in other popular OLE applications. It can also be easily integrated with other OLE-enabled languages, tools and applications, such as Visual Basic, Visual C++, Microsoft Word, Excel and Access. Visual Object COBOL can be used as the scripting language for diverse OLE applications, enabling the COBOL program to control how these OLE applications execute.

Visual Object COBOL also allows COBOL programs to be created as OLE service providers. This enables the COBOL code to be used or reused from other OLE-enabled languages. As a result, Visual Basic or Visual C++ can control a Visual Object COBOL program.
