By default 8, but it can be increased by sys admins up to a max limit of 32.

You can also code a value clause at the group level, e.g.:
Code:

01  grp-fld         value spaces.
    05  el-1        pic x.
    05  el-2        pic x.
    05  el-3        pic x.

or
Code:

01  grp-fld         value all '5'.
    05  el-1        pic x.
    05  el-2        pic x.
    05  el-3        pic x. 

In this case the grp-fld will contain "555".
