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?


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.
