SYNC is an abbreviation for SYNCHRONIZED and has the same meaning. The SYNCHRONIZED clause is an optional clause in a data description entry.
The SYNCHRONIZED clause specifies the alignment of an elementary item on a natural boundary in storage. The SYNCHRONIZED clause can appear at the elementary level or at the group level in which case, every elementary item within this group level item is synchronized- this you've already shown in the examples you post..
Format of SYNC is:
LEFT: Specifies that the elementary item is to be positioned so that it will begin at the left character position of the natural boundary in which the elementary item is placed.
RIGHT: Specifies that the elementary item is to be positioned such that it will terminate on the right character position of the natural boundary in which it has been placed. _________________ Regards,
