Hi all,

Can anyone tell me What is the Maximum length of Albhabetic (A) and Albha-numeric (X) fields in COBOL?

I think the limit will vary based on COBOL Compilers?

Please give the COBOL compilers info as well, if possible.

Thanks,
Gnanas

Hello,

There is also documentation for multiple COBOL compilers available via the "Manuals" link at the top of the page.
