User-names Longer than 127 Bytes are Truncated

In RM/COBOL, you can specify user-names (data-names, procedure-names, program-names, etc) up to 240 characters long. In this COBOL system, user-names longer than 127 bytes in length are truncated and a warning message is produced.


Results may be affected if the truncated user-name is used with XML Extensions, to export or import XML documents; therefore, we recommend that you keep user-names to 127 bytes or less.
