hai vadivel,

as for as i've know we cannot use semicolon or comma. if i'm right, HYPHEN is the only permitted special character with respect to naming the files.


corrections welcomed.....

Hi,

If you are not aware , this site also hosts manuals and most of the questions can be answered if you spend time reading it.

Click on the "Manuals" link on the top of the this page

In the link click on VS COBOL II Language Reference manual under VS COBOL II section.

Click on icon type and semicolon and press Enter.

Now go thru the topics which will answer your questions.



Hope this helps.
