JUSTIFY and the ACCEPT Statements

PSS ID Number: Q10582 Article last modified on 11-16-1992

2.00 2.10 2.20 MS-DOS

Problem: JUSTIFY seems to work as expected when used with the MOVE command, but it does not work with the Format 4 ACCEPT statement. The right margins of the data are not justified in the field after the Format 4 ACCEPT.

Response: JUSTIFY only specifies right-to-left alignment when the field is the receiving field for a MOVE statement. This is documented on Page 136 of the “Microsoft COBOL Compiler Reference Manual.”
