Chapter 6 -> Moving Data, Printing, Displaying Output.
Thursday we will continue on the screen lab
Assignment 2 - Number 1 page 297, plus add an option to print a report similar to the one in Figure 7.4 (next page). Your program will ask if the user wants to print a report, create a file or quit. Obviously the report won't be exactly like the one in 7.4 but do print out all the info that is in the out-salary file in a nice, neat and orderly fashion.
Due: February 11th
These are extra, do them if you want some experience with FTP or designing a program and we can go over your answers.
Lab3 -> An FTP example, I believe most of you have FTP'd already, if not you can try this method. Used the dos FTP.
Lab 4 -> Design Lab, making hierarchy charts & pseudo code
Let's do this lab today after we cover the notes.

DON'T FORGET TO 'SET PROTECTION' SO I CAN SEE IT!
-> $SET PROTECTION=(W:REWD) USR1:[DTUCKER.COBOL.SPRING2010.ASSIGN3]LASTNAME_ASSIGN1.COB
Link for Date Function
Exam 1 - Chapters 1 - 7 -> Open book
copy USR1:[dtucker.cobol]CHAPTER9LABFIX.cob chapter9lab.cob
Read the notes in the source code and finish the program, this is problem #10 page 382 where you ask the user for a statement and number of times and it prints it x number of times to a file. You can have it print to the screen also.
When done copy your result back to my LABCH9 directory:
COPY CHAPER9LABFirstInitialLastName USR1:[DTUCKER.COBOL.SPRING2010.LABCH9]
then set protection on it so I can read it.
$SET PROTECTION=(W:REWD) USR1:[DTUCKER.COBOL.SPRING2010.LABCH9]NAME_OF_FILE.COB
Go Over Exam
Cover Chapter 9
Other Ch-9 Notes
Continue on last week's lab
3/11/2010 we are on Spring Break
Other Ch 10 notes
Sample procedure division of single control break (Problem 2 in Ch 10)
Number 5, Page 554 & 555
Save to : USR1:[DTUCKER.COBOL.SPRING2010.ASSIGN4]
Practice with Validation (mini lab/assignment)
Let's work on #1 page 468 with a few modifications. Make a simple program that validates user entered data according to the chart and requirements listed in a - d. Instead of an error listing let's have it immediately respond to the user that the data is invalid. So it will ask the user one question at a time and immediately tell you if it's valid. See if you can make it so if the user doesn't put in leading zeros to any of the numeric fields that it does so for you.
Copy it up to USR1:[DTUCKER.COBOL.SPRING2010.LABCH11]
Write a program that sorts the following data
According to the EMPLOYEE-NO which is the 1st 5 characters of the data.
1. Have it print the unsorted list
2. Then have it print the sorted list
3. Use the built in COBOL sort feature
4. Format for the data is found on page 643 Figure 14.7
Review for the exam
Continue with Lab
Can we move this class to another day?
Looks like Monday or Wednesday, Possibly Tuesday.
15th - Exam 2 - Chapters 8 - 14
Write a program:
- IF & EVALUATE
- Control Break
- Validation (with error messages)
- Array Processing
- Reading from a File
Edit Chapter 14's lab and add functionality to insert a record then re-print the list sorted.
Save the new list to your directory.
I'm not worried about how the output looks for this one.
One last assignment:
Assignmnet #5; Page 736 #4 - Using a CALL statement to another file, also this one is user interactive instead of accessing files.
When you link it will look something like this:
$ LINK MAINPART, SUBPROGRAM
Then you will RUN MAINPART
Copy to USR1:[DTUCKER.COBOL.SPRING2010.ASSIGN5]
Start on Chapter 15
Chapter 17 & discuss the Final
Examples of Calling another program Caller, Callee
