a cobol logic

Post by snehamahajan » Thu Jan 10, 2013 6:27 am

please tell the logic for the following program-
updates the account balance for all the accounts after settling the
withdrawals against the existing balance. A customer can withdraw any amount of money any number of times in a day.
The Transaction Details file should be a Sequential Input File.
please help me.

And the Master File is? If sequential, two-file match and create a new file, if KSDS, and transactions generally less than 5% vs records on Master File, then keyed reads and update in place.

The rest is just arithmetic.

And is it a real Production question or a class-exercise?
