Hi achu

It should work correctly.As far as I know there is no restriction to ACCEPT as per the datatype.What is the value you are trying to enter??Are you getting any error message?
Thanks
Arun

No you can not.

ACCEPT is only capable of handling BYTE streams, not binary(COMP) data.
It is not allowed to code COMP field in ACCEPT field.

You really should double check the Fine Manual prior to making such a broad statement.
"identifier-1
Can be a group item or an elementary alphabetic, alphanumeric, alphanumeric-edited, numeric-edited, external decimal, DBCS, national, or external floating-point data item."
