A question... Which version of COBOL added the ELSE clause to IF statements?

I was on a team of DBAs that had do data extraction and conversion from a mainframe database for Y2K using a COBOL that did not support an ELSE clause. We called it "COBOL I" but I can't find online references using that name.

That was my first post and I don't see a way to edit it. What I meant was, what was the last version that did NOT support an ELSE clause?
