common procedure common procedure armandprog (Programmer) (OP) 20 Apr 15 14:03 hello, i am programming in powercobol. Is it possible to make a common procedure (just for calculate) and use it in several form?. Thank's RE: common procedure Glenn9999 (Programmer) 20 Apr 15 22:08 Sure, just code around the procedure (e.g. something you PERFORM) to make as if it's a function in terms of other languages. Document it well, most certainly. Something like: "Expects INPUT-VAR1, and INPUT-VAR2 as input, returns answer in OUTPUT-VAR1". Design the procedure accordingly and you can reuse it multiple times.
