Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This is the link to the COBOL manual for V5R4:

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/iseries/v5r4/topic/books/sc092539.pdf

Appendix A at the end speaks to the limits on the compiler.

Basically, N can be any size that keeps the 01 level the occurs is attached to under 16MB (16 711 568 bytes).
