Just wanted to let the ;list know that I got the cgi cobol to finally work
today! It is printing the report to the screen.  I figured out that instead of
the cgi to format the numbers, let cobol do it with the Pic ZZZ,ZZ9. I
move the count variable which is a S9(6)  to the "Z" variable and then
move that to the varval(v1) variable and then call the procedure like
the one below. It inserted the commas in the right place and printed
zeroes when needed.

WS-REG-CNT is the S9(6) variable
TREGULAR IS THE PIC ZZZ,ZZ9 variable.

Here is an example:
* Set variable /%REGULAR%/
           compute v1 = v1 + 1
           move 'REGULAR' to varnm(v1)
           move zero to tregular
           Move WS-REG-CNT to TREGULAR
           Move tregular to varval(v1)
           call procedure 'TICHECKR' using varval(v1) varln(v1).

This has definitely been a learning experience. My supervisor just wants me to 
tweak it
a little to make it look a little better. But all in all. I am VERY Happy!! :)
