Hello,

BLW is the Base Locator for Working-storage. +6E8 is the displacement from the base locator. 0000310 is the displacement from the start of that level-01. 8C is the length/type (8 characters) of that field.

Look here for more info:

This is the cobol programming guide. The "book" near the top left will take you to the Table of Contents.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.
