Introduction to COBOL/400

This is an introductory class on the COBOL language. The class covers the general ANS 85 COBOL standard, and the AS/400 extensions to the standard for the OPM compiler (i.e. not ILE). Students will learn basic COBOL rules and syntax; write, run and debug several batch oriented COBOL programs. Interactive COBOL is not covered in this introductory class.
Before attending this course, students should take ProTechs AS/400 Concepts and Facilities class, or equivalent. Basic knowledge of computer programming logic and techniques is also required.
