Screen Column Number Specification

Visual COBOL permits you to specify screen column numbers up to and including 999, but RM/COBOL permits you to specify column numbers greater than 999. If you try to run an RM/COBOL source program containing a column number greater than 999 in Visual COBOL, the column number is truncated so that only the last three digits are used. If truncation of the column number occurs for an item to be displayed on the screen, the position of that item on the screen in Visual COBOL will differ from its position in RM/COBOL.
