Can Fillers be filled with any value other than SPACES like ';' or '.' ?

1 solution is: We can use Alphanumeric variables in place of FILLERs.

But the Q is; can FILLER have any othe value ?

Yes, fillers can have any value you want defined in them.
05 FILLER PIC X(20) VALUE 'Anything you want'.

Prafull,

It seems to be a simple thing. Why don't you try and let us know instead of posting a query in the forum?
