you can always define 1 char pic x field with a single-quote or a double quote.
you can also use the figurative constant QUOTE/QUOTES depending on the QUOTE/APOST compiler option used. If you have further questions, refer to the Programming Guide and Reference for the version of COBOL that you are using. _________________ Dick Brenholtz
