Author: ATS
$995




Description
iSeries COBOL/400 Programming is a self-paced, audio-cassette course providing comprehensive, practical training in the design and coding of COBOL/400 programs.

Upon completion you'll be able to:

  • Use Source Entry Utility and the Programming Development Manager to code and create COBOL/400 programs.

  • Create batchable programs that print reports and process files using advanced COBOL/400 techniques.

  • Use structured programming input/output and logic control operations.

  • Create and use externally described printer files using Data Description Specifications and Report Layout Utility.

  • Use externally described physical and logical files.

  • Process files using composite and partial keys.

  • Use simple and multi-dimensional tables.

  • Use sophisticated PERFORM processing.

  • Call programs from programs and pass parameters.

  • Execute OS/400 commands from a program.

  • Use copy books to avoid redundant code in Working Storage Section and Procedure Division.

  • Use advanced debugging techniques.
