5.2.6 LABEL RECORDS Clause

X >_Workstation_> Under AIX, OS/2, and Windows, the LABEL RECORDS clause is
X not supported for line sequential files.

It is treated as a comment for sequential, relative and indexed files. A warning message is issued if you use any of the following language elements:

The LABEL RECORDS clause indicates the presence or absence of labels. If it is not specified for a file, label records for that file must conform to the system label specifications.

For VSAM files, the LABEL RECORDS clause is syntax checked, but it has no effect on the execution of the program. COBOL label processing, therefore, is not performed.

Labels conforming to system specifications exist for this file.

STANDARD is permitted for mass storage devices and tape devices.

No labels exist for this file.

OMITTED is permitted for tape devices.

X data-name-2

X User labels are present in addition to standard labels. Data-name-2
X specifies the name of a user label record. Data-name-2 must appear as
X the subject of a record description entry associated with the file.

X The LABEL RECORDS clause is treated as a comment under an SD.
