There is a link to manuals at the top of the page. Click on it, find the COBOL Language Reference manual, and find Appendix B on compiler limits. It lists all the limits for the compiler (note that there are system limits which may restrict things below what the compiler allows).

If you cannot be bothered to click a few times to find out the answer for yourself, why do you expect us to be a manual reading service for you?
