MAINFRAME - TIP OF THE DAY : When you specified V for RECFM parameter, LRECL value is largest record in the file plus 4 bytes. These four bytes contain the actual length of each variable length record in the file

Is there a way to store variable outside the code?

Code:
COMPUTE K215-SUM = K215-FIRST K215-SECOND

IF K215-SUM < 100 AND K100-ACCOUNT-NO = 110 OR 118 OR 120 OR 125 OR 130 OR 132 OR 136 OR 140 OR 148 OR 150 OR 155 OR 156 OR 160 OR 165 OR 168 OR 171 OR 172 OR 175 OR 176 OR 180 OR 185

  MOVE 'Account exist' TO K110-STATE
ELSE
STRING K215-SUM
                  ' To capital accout' INTO K110-MESSAGE-TEXT
END-IF.


It there a way to store the account numbers K100-ACCOUNT-NO somewhere outside the code?

If you mean "that big list of literals, so that they don't make the code ugly and more difficult to maintain", then yes.

Code:
05  K100-ACCOUNT-NO PIC 9(3).
    88  K100-ACCOUNT-IS-CLIENT VALUE 110 118 120 125 130 132 136 140 148 150 155 156 160 165 168 171 172 175 176 180 185.


You can make the condition-name (that's what an 88 is) more meaningful (I guessed).

You could also make K100-ACCOUNT-NO a PIC X(3), it does not need to be numeric just because it has numbers in.

You can put the 88 into a copybook of its own, to use it in multiple places without retrying (copybooks can be nested).

If you mean outside the program then you can use a sequential file
if you mean outside the procedure division use the 88 level

It is possible to edit the clipboard and our forum member Prino has provided a macro to do so. Search for it if you are interested. However, IMHO, copying stem variables to clipboard will be a convoluted way to achieve what you are trying to do.
