Can you be a bit more definitive about what you want to know Alan. Generally COBOL's built-in error handling is so fundamentally useless that it is not even taught any more and I can't recall using it since the 1980s.

On the other hand COBOL400 and ILE COBOL both have IBM extensions that allow you to trap and respond to error messages which frankly is far more useful than the COBOL stuff.
