Hello,

Suggest you return to the link and read all of the info.

I suspect you missed this:
Quote:
Each figurative constant is considered a one-character alphanumeric literal.


Also, at the top of the page there is a link to the COBOL Programming Guide. It has additional material.

If you find something in the manyual that is not clear, post what you found and your question about it. Someone will be able to clarify.
