subject: [COBOL400-L] read TERMINAL-FILE into a temporary area

 

Hi all,

Why is it that when the read command below is executed, the temporary area
"ERESP-COMMAND-HOLD-I" is not populated?  Immediately preceding the read
command, a write command is executed to the same file with the same 
format.

Any ideas?
