Hello,

I need to include single code in Working-Storage variable comment.

Eg : My value would be INCLUDE=(140,5,CH,EQ,C'00001'.

Kindly let me know that How should I declare working-storage variable to hold above mentioned value. So that I can use that variable in procedure division....

Thanks & Regards,
Rathvel.

Can't we use a single-quote double-quote combo?
Code:

05  VAR-1  PIC X(29) VALUE  "INCLUDE=(140,5,CH,EQ,C'00001'".


Won't the above line work???

new2cobol,

Yes that is expectable if the COBOL compiled option QUOTE is in effect. However, I believe most places have the APOST compiler option on.

You should try not to change from the installation standard, it makes code hard to maintain.

Dave,
