Types of Division in COBOL

Division in COBOL:

There are two leading divisions of any COBOL program.
i. IDENTIFICATION DIVISION
ii. ENVIRONMENT DIVISION

IDENTIFICATION DIVISION:

The IDENTIFICATION DIVISION is the first division of every COBOL source program. The paragraph PROGRAM-ID is essential in most of the machines. The other paragraphs are optional.

ENVIRONMENT DIVISION:

The ENVIRONMENT DIVISION is the second division in a COBOL source program. It is the most machine-dependent division. The computer and all peripheral devices are required by the program.
