Field Names

Restriction: This topic applies only when a Database Connectors license has been installed via the Micro Focus License Management System.

If your COBOL application already exists, and if it must access a relational database that already exists, you may have to work around differences in the names of the fields, as well as naming conventions imposed by the RDBMS. For example, your program might use the name EMPLOYEE-NO, while the database uses the name EMP-NUMBER for the same item of information.
