Rather than expecting someone to spoon-feed this information, why not look up the answer in the COBOL Language Reference manual, easily found at the IBM web site http://www.ibm.com ? You will then be able to find your own answers, which is a very valuable skill to acquire.

You could also write a little program to write this value/format to a dataset and browse the dataset.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
