Hi all,

I have a variable defined in the following form.

77 VAR1 PIC ABAB(8).

And moving a value of 'PITFALL' to VAR1.

At display it shows only "P I".
But the storage allocated is 11 bytes.

How the length is calculated by compiler?

Your comments are expected.

Regards
Raghu

Your picture-string contains two characters, separated by a blank, and followed by eight blanks. That adds up to 11 bytes.
