in file-control section.

select file-ref assign to file


can i give a sequential file name?
if i have file on my disk, how to specify the path ?

i gave 'C:\filename.txt'


but it takes as 'C00filename' by throwing below error

There was an unsuccessful OPEN or CLOSE of file C00filename in program FILEINP at relative location X'04C8'.
Neither FILE STATUS nor an ERROR declarative were specified. The status code was 35.
From compile unit FILEINP at entry point FILEINP at compile unit offset +000004C8 at entry offset +000004C8 at
address 11700C30.

allen,
I can only point to the reference manual where it discusses environmental variables

am a little confused with:
Quote:
i gave 'C:\filename.txt'


in the cobol program or your jcl?
if jcl, refer to the JCL manual.

Why? This is not valid mainframe syntax. Are you actually running on a mainframe?

How will the program be executed? Post the execution JCL.

The cobol program on the mainframe cannot automagically grab a file from "your disk".

Even if i give a sequential file as input file, it doesnt work.

COBOL Program:

IDENTIFICATION DIVISION.
PROGRAM-ID. SAMPLE1.
ENVIRONMENT DIVISION.
INPUT-OUTPUT SECTION.
FILE-CONTROL.
SELECT INFILE ASSIGN TO IN1.
SELECT OUTFILE ASSIGN TO OUT1.
DATA DIVISION.
FILE SECTION.
FD INFILE
RECORDING MODE F.
01 INREC.
05 INVAL PIC 9(3).
FD OUTFILE
RECORDING MODE F.
01 OUTREC.
05 OUTVAL PIC 9(3).
WORKING-STORAGE SECTION.
01 ARE-THERE-MORE-RECORDS PIC XXX VALUE 'YES'.
PROCEDURE DIVISION.
100-MAIN-MODULE.
OPEN INPUT INFILE.
OPEN OUTPUT OUTFILE.
PERFORM UNTIL ARE-THERE-MORE-RECORDS = 'NO'
READ INFILE
AT END
MOVE 'NO' TO ARE-THERE-MORE-RECORDS
NOT AT END
PERFORM 200-CALC
END-READ
END-PERFORM.
CLOSE INFILE.
CLOSE OUTFILE.
STOP RUN.
200-CALC.
MOVE INVAL TO OUTVAL
WRITE OUTREC.




in JCL program i have given : (i have just copied part of jcl)

//T388062S JOB (12345678),SAMPLE1,MSGCLASS=A,
// MSGLEVEL=(1,1),CLASS=A,NOTIFY=T388062,RESTART=*
//COBOL EXEC PGM=IGYCRCTL,REGION=640K,COND=(12,LE),
// PARM=(NOTERM,NOSEQUENCE,LIB,XREF,DYN,'')
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=(*)
//SYSIN DD DSN=T388062.AB.S(SAMPLE1),DISP=SHR
//IN1 DD DSN=T388062.EMPDET,DISP=SHR
//OUT1 DD DSN=T388062.EMPOUT,DISP=SHR
//SYSUT1 DD UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(2,2))

program is abended with error :

There was an unsuccessful OPEN or CLOSE of file IN1 in program SAMPLE1
at relative location X'04C6'. Neither FILE STATUS nor an ERROR declarative were specified. The status status code was 35. From compile unit SAMPLE1 at entry point SAMPLE1 at compile unit offset +000004C6 at entry offset +000004C6 at address 11700C16.

i meant to say that i have created both input and output files, just i want to move records to output file.

but i got to know what is my mistake, i have to give file reference,

Quote:
//IN1 DD DSN=T388062.EMPDET,DISP=SHR
//OUT1 DD DSN=T388062.EMPOUT,DISP=SHR


while linking, i had given this in compilation.

now its working fine. thank you.

It is a bad practice to use SHR for sequential input and output files (unless the dataset is a pds and then there can be problems).

Well-managed systems will not allow this to be run in production.

Why? This is not valid mainframe syntax. Are you actually running on a mainframe?

How will the program be executed? Post the execution JCL.

The cobol program on the mainframe cannot automagically grab a file from "your disk".



then how can i specify a disk file in cobol program?
i have seen in some books they have given disk file as input/output.

my jcl code doesnt specify anything about disk file. it just takes the cobol program. thats it.


//T388061G JOB (12345678),SORTCOB1,MSGCLASS=A,
// MSGLEVEL=(1,1),CLASS=A,NOTIFY=T388062,RESTART=*
//COBOL EXEC PGM=IGYCRCTL,REGION=640K,COND=(12,LE),
// PARM=(NOTERM,NOSEQUENCE,LIB,XREF,DYN,'')
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=(*)
//SYSIN
Quote:
DD DSN=T388062.AB.C(SORTCOB1),DISP=SHR

you are not executing a cobol program with the jcl provided.
EXEC PGM=IGYCRCTL is the cobol compiler.

i have given that assign statement in a cobol program, so i have used a cobol compiler


my cobol code is :

IDENTIFICATION DIVISION.
PROGRAM-ID. SAMPLE.
ENVIRONMENT DIVISION.
INPUT-OUTPUT SECTION.
FILE-CONTROL.
SELECT SORT-FILE
ASSIGN TO 'C:\COB\SOR.TMP'.
SELECT IN-FILE
ASSIGN TO 'C:\COB\IN.TXT'
ORGANIZATION IS LINE SEQUENTIAL.
SELECT OUT-FILE
ASSIGN TO 'C:\COB\OUT.TXT'
ORGANIZATION IS LINE SEQUENTIAL.

You used a cobol compiler because the code is cobol source.

You appear to be somewhat lost:

i have seen in some books they have given disk file as input/output.

The SELECT and ASSIGN along with the FD is how you specify a file in a cobol program.

From what you have posted, there is no reason to be concerned with input/output (actually input-output if i understand what you are talking about).

Your ASSIGN statements are not valid for files on the mainframe - you should assign to a ddname.

Which has NOTHING to do with the compiler. . . What you have named is a 3270-emulator . . . This is one way people connect to a mainframe. It should have nothing to do with assigning files. . .

You need to speak with someone who actually works with cobol on your mainframe. They can show you what you have mixed up.
