    Ah, this answers some the questions I noted in your other post. I'll assume 'fresher' == 'freshman'/'newbie'

    As for EXCEL, you'll have use their documentation to discover the requisite file/record formatting APIs, they should be directly callable from any COBOL variant (assuming their stock STDCALL, not funky .net).
