I am using XML GENERATE to create XML using the copybook and its content from a file. I have a requirement where in they mentioned a TAG name of more than 30 characters in length.


Since COBOL limits the variable declaration to 30 characters I am unable to form the XML Tag for the above mentioned XML.

01 Policy_Details.
05 AdditionalpolicyinformationProvided pic x(04) value XXXX.

The above declaration is not possible due to restriction in variable declaration. Is there any way to achieve this? Please let me know if any additional information required.
