There are two types of linking in COBOL: static linking and dynamic linking.

In static linking, subroutine links into the calling program and doesn’t exist as a separate module.

In the dynamic module, subroutine doesn’t link into the main program and exists as a separate module. DYNAM or NODYNAM  link edit options can be used for static and dynamic linking.
