Hi,
Will cobol group variables always treated as alpha numeric?

01 WS-DATA
05 NUMBER-1 PIC 9(5).
05 NUMBER-2 PIC 9(4).

Will WS-DATA be considered as 9(9) or X(9)?
I want to compare the record in this dataset with another...
Please comment...

Hello,

Group fields are always considered alphanumeric.
