The COBOL Advanced course examines the use of arrays in a COBOL program, and the methodologies used for file sorting. It details the use of subprograms and the linkage section. It also shows how parameters are passed across to the program.
More experienced COBOL Programmers who need to create or maintain programs and subprograms that use tables/arrays, indexing, and sorts.
