Hi,

I am migrating Cobol programs to PL1. I have structure mentioned below
DCL 1 A,
2 B CHAR(40),
2 C CHAR(40),
2 TEST,
3 FILLER CHAR(01) INIT(' '),
3 TEMPVAR CHAR(40);

The TEST is used directly in COBOL has given below but in PL1, group variable cant be used directly.it throws error.

INSPECT TEST REPLACING
ALL "STRA " BY "STR "
ALL " UNTERER " BY " UNT ".

Can anyone help me regard this? How Can i handle group variables in PL1.

Regards
Nehru
