FD Section

FD Section

You may need to configure the source definition to group fields. Although the Designer creates a separate source definition for each FD entry in the COBOL file, each entry may represent the functional equivalent of multiple tables of data. When you configure the source definition, you create different levels of fields within the source to group data into separate pseudo-tables.
