FD Section

FD Section

The Designer assumes that each FD entry defines the equivalent of a source table in a relational source and creates a different COBOL source definition for each such entry. For example, if the COBOL file has two FD entries, CUSTOMERS and ORDERS, the Designer creates one COBOL source definition containing the fields attributed to CUSTOMERS, and another with the fields that belong to ORDERS.
