These pages contain the COBOL programming lectures and tutorials for CS4312 - Software Engineering 2. For COBOL programming exercises, COBOL example programs, links to other COBOL sites or information about the Year2000 problem please connect to the main COBOL page.
The COBOL programming lectures presented in the are delivered using Microsoft PowerPoint slides (Powerpoint 95 i.e. v7.0). There are three ways to view these slides.
The Plug-In and Viewer for PowerPoint 95 are no longer easy to obtain from the Microsoft site (they have been replaced by PowerPoint 97) so I am making them available from here.

Each lecture topic in the module outline is followed by these three clickable buttons -
After a number of requests I have collected all the lecture slides (except
the Report Writer tutorials) into one
612KB file called AllLectures.Zip.
A comprehensive, one hundred page, COBOL Quick Reference based on these lecture slides is contained in the book "Year 2000 in a Nutshell". A detailed description of the book is available on the O'Reilly web site.
