Hello,

Do you just want to build the biggest array possible or do you have some requirement that requires a large array?

If you tell us what you want to accomplish, we may be able to offer suggestions.

Every COBOL Language Reference has a section such as this one for Enterprise COBOL:
Appendix B. Compiler limits
Try looking it up and find all the answers you want.
If you are still unsure, post back and we can help.
