COBOL Data and Datafile Definitions

Duration
4 hours

Overview

Description

The COBOL Data and Datafile Definitions course explains how the COBOL programming language references and manages data. It also shows how COBOL data definitions can be used to manipulate the way data is used. It explores display and computational formats, and the use of redefines to reference data in different ways.
