X The INSERT statement is a library statement that adds COBOL statements to
X the source program included by a BASIS statement.

X sequence-number

X Can optionally appear in columns 1 through 6, followed by a space.
X The content of this field is ignored.


X Can appear anywhere within columns 1 through 72, followed by a space
X and the sequence-number-field. There must be no other text in the
X statement.

X sequence-number-field

X A number which must be equal to a sequence-number in the BASIS source
X program. This sequence-number is the 6-digit number the programmer
X assigns in columns 1 through 6 of the COBOL coding form.

X The numbers referenced in the sequence-number-fields of any INSERT or
X DELETE statements must always be specified in ascending numeric order.

X The sequence-number-field must be a single number (for example,
X 000130). At least one new source program statement must follow the
X INSERT statement for insertion after the statement number specified by
X the sequence-number-field.

X New source program statements following the INSERT statement can include
X DBCS or EUC data items.

X Note: If INSERT or DELETE statements are used to modify the COBOL source
X program provided by a BASIS statement, the sequence field of the COBOL
X source program must contain numeric sequence-numbers in ascending order.
X The source file remains unchanged. Any INSERT or DELETE statements
X referring to these sequence-numbers must occur in ascending order.
