1.I have a file and have opened that file to write some records, and I have written records into that file but finally I have forget to close the file. Now what will happen to the file and the program.

WARM REGARDS,
Murali

As long as u r not opening the file again in the same pgm, nothing is going to happen. When the trasaction or the job completes all the resources used by it would be released.

Probably you should've tried a small program yourself and see what happens..........Smile

It certainly closes it. Surprisingly, you won't get any warnings in the compilation also !!

Hi,

I don't think it will work, it will definetly give error "File not closed" during run time.

why do you think that? Neither COBOL, nor LE, returns such messages.

please do a little research before providing answers to posts.

Murali,

As arrbee suggested in his post:
such elementary questions can be answered by a small test program,
or
RTFM.

Cobol 74 compile needs the file to be closed and in cobol 85 their no need of closing the file manually the file be closed when the job ends

and

if it is vsam file then u need to close it so that u can avoid file status code 97 for processing the same file for the next time...
