MY interviewer said that it won't throw any SOC-7 error, and it works just fine. But how I'm now sure.. Please try it..
p.s assume everything in lower case is in upper case..
Kindly Look into this issue..

Hi
rupesh you are write ,but if you declare emp-id as pic9(6) without group variable then the error will come while moving "12345a" to it,This is working because of the rules of group variable which is

"""group item is always assumed to be PIC X because a group item may have several different data items and types subordinate to it and an X picture is the only one which could support such collections""""

Hi Nitin,

Thanks a lot for your clarification. Yes you are Right as it is group variable it will not give any error but if we define it as single variable it will give error as alphanumeric value can not move in Numeric value.

Thanks again for your clarification


Regards

Rupesh
