Move corresponding - cobol verb, COBOL Programming

MOVE CORRESPONDING:

It is frequently required to move some of the data items of one group to some other data items in the other group. If the names of the equivalent data items of the two groups are different, then for each of the data item, a separate MOVE verb must be used. Though, if the equivalent data items of both the records have identical names, then rather than of using separate MOVE statement,  just one MOVE statement with CORRESPONDING  option can be used. The illustration below describes the use of the MOVE verb with the CORRESPONDING option.
