Hi Tim,

COBOL has support for changing data areas:

ENVIRONMENT DIVISION.

SPECIAL-NAMES.
    DATA-AREA AS MY-DTAARA.

DATA DIVISION.
WORKING-STORAGE SECTION.
01  DTAARA-DATA PIC X(256).

PROCEDURE DIVISION.
...
    DISPLAY DTAARA-DATA UPON MY-DTAARA
        FOR "MYDTAARA" IN LIBRARY "QGPL".

    ACCEPT DTAARA-DATA FROM MY-DTAARA
        FOR "MYDTAARA" IN LIBRARY "QGPL".

hth,
