Question:

The ASSIGN TO name in my SELECT statement is a variable. How can I set iscobol.file.index.FileName in the properties file when the file name is determined by the program at run time?

Answer:

The solution is to set the iscobol.file.index.FileName property programmatically. For example, 
       77 file-name pic x(100).
       77 property-name pic x(100).

           string "file.index.", file-name delimited by spaces 
              into property-name.
           set environment property-name to "easydb".
Notice that when you set an isCOBOL property using the SET verb, you do not specify the "iscobol." prefix in the variable name.
