I am trying to write a cobol program on the 400 for the first time, and I'm quite sure this is a syntax problem but for the life of me I can't seem to figure it out and haven't found an answer with ibm's website yet.
I have the following code:
SELECT EMPLOYEE-DATA ASSIGN TO EMP.
When I get to this point the SEU generates an error telling me the following:
Invalid Device Type in ASSIGN clause.
emp is a physical file that I have created so it does exist.....
Anyone have any idea what the heck I'm doing wrong here?
