  • “.” in file name in COBOL

    I have a file "P.FILE". I want to define it in COBOL, eg, SELECT PFILE ASSIGN TO P.FILE, but the compiler won't accept it as it uses the period to mark the end-of-statement. I can't rename or override the file name, it has to be P.FILE. Any solutions would be greatly appreciated.
