Hi,
MOVE CORRESPONDING is used to move elementary fields of a group-level field to corresponding fields of the target group-level field.
The elementary fields must be of exactly the same name to get moved!
Attached is a well- known example.
If you issue MOVE CORRESPONDING GROUP-1 TO GROUP-2 then FIELD-A and FIELD-E will be moved but FIELD-C and FIELD-D have different group-level names (FIELD-B vs. FIELD-BB) so they don't correspond and will not be moved!

01  GROUP-1.                       01  GROUP-2.
         05  FIELD-A        PIC 999.        05  FIELD-E      PIC 99. 
         05  FIELD-B.                       05  FIELD-A      PIC 9(4).
             10  FIELD-C    PIC X(12).      05  FIELD-BB.
             10  FIELD-D    PIC XXX.            10  FIELD-C  PIC XXX.
         05  FIELD-E        PIC 99.             10  FIELD-D  PIC X.
         05  FIELD-F        PIC X.          05  FIELD-G      PIC X(10).
