Hi
I have this code in one of the programs
05 ONE-SEVEN-TWO PIC S9(04) COMP VALUE +172.
05 FILLER REDEFINES ONE-SEVEN-TWO.
10 FILLER PIC X.
10 C-172 PIC X.

and there is code in the procedure division where it is as follows

INSPECT WS-LINE REPLACING ALL C-172 BY SPACE

Would anyone be able to help me as to what c-172 stands for or how I could find it out

thanks in advance

The comp image of +172 is a x'00AC', so C-172 is a hex AC......
