Condition-Name COBOL

Each reference to a condition- name must be unique, or be made unique through qualification, subscripting, or both.


If qualification is used to make a condition-name unique, the associated conditional variable may be used as the first qualifier. If qualification is used, the hierarchy of names associated with the conditional variable or the conditional variable itself must be used to make the condition-name unique.

If references to a conditional variable require subscripting, references to any of its condition-names also require the same subscripting.

The restrictions on the combined use of qualification and subscripting of condition- names are the same as those that apply to an identifier.

In the general formats, condition-name-1 refers to a condition-name qualified or subscripted, as necessary for unique reference.
