Comments:

This affects data items that appear after a variable-length table in the same record; that is, after an item with an OCCURS DEPENDING clause, but not subordinate to it.

With ODOSLIDE, these items always immediately follow the table, whatever its current size; this means their addresses change as the table's size changes. With NOODOSLIDE, these items have fixed addresses, and begin after the end of the space allocated for the table at its maximum length.

Note: You cannot have boolean data items following a variable-length table in the same record. Also, you cannot have boolean data items after a variable-length table in the same record.
