To assign a value to a COBOL field

  1. From the Interface Mapper Linkage Section pane, drag a field to the COBOL Assignments pane.
  2. In the Value field, type a literal value to assign to the field specified in the Name field.
Note:
  • If you drag a group field, the New Assignment dialog box opens for each elementary item in turn. You can click Cancel if you do not want to set values for all of them.
  • You can also create a COBOL Assignment field by right-clicking in the COBOL Assignments pane and selecting New Assignment from the context menu.
