iSeries Interactive COBOL/400 Programming (ACB3)
Author: ATS

iSeries Interactive COBOL/400 Programming is a self-paced, audio- cassette course providing comprehensive, practical training in the design and coding of interactive programs, with special attention given to Screen Design Aid.

Upon completion you'll be able to:

  • Use Screen Design Aid to create, test, and maintain display files.

  • Use Source Entry Utility to maintain display file DDS and add documentation.

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

  • Create interactive COBOL data inquiry programs.

  • Create interactive COBOL data entry and file maintenance programs that validate user-entered data.

  • Use and override data base file field attributes on displays.

  • Create COBOL programs that use multiple display formats.

  • Create overall and cursor-sensitive Help text.

  • Use display file-defined and message file-defined error messages.

  • Use "put overrides" and "data overrides" to reduce data transfers and improve performance.
