Thanks Terry,

to move the saved index back to the original, do I move or set?

Rick,

You can just define it like this:

 05  GROUP-ITEM-LOC USAGE IS INDEX.

You can now target a field defined this way in your set statement.

Subject: [COBOL400-L] I'm stumped - working storage tables indexed by


what type and size is an table index field?

to save an index field, how what type and size of field should the result
of a 'SET' verb be?

can you directly compare the index field to the save field? - IF
INDEX-FIELD = SAVE-INDEX-FIELD

I'm having a problem with a program that's worked forever, until now - my
index field is getting hammered, making a move to a table element that
isn't in the bounds of the field.

Thanks,

Rick
