COBOL - Simple Insertion Editing
This type of editing is valid for alphanumeric-edited, numeric-edited, and DBCS items.
Each insertion symbol is counted in the size of the item, and represents the position within the item where the equivalent character is to be inserted.
For edited DBCS items, each insertion symbol (B) is counted in the size of the item and represents the position within the item where the DBCS space is to be inserted.
|PICTURE||Value of data||Edited result|
The symbol b represents a space.
