Then this version of MF is wrong.
Even in MF Object Cobol Language reference
on page 2-2, it clearly states this.

It is well known that MF will compile any old rubbish
thrown at it (including, as a result, sometimes generating
wrong code).


Hi Roger, I can compile the same program using Micro Focus COBOL for UNIX V4.1 revision 030compiler in a HP-UX environment.

The compiler is reacting correctly.
In order for a comma or period to be treated as
a seperator, it must be followed by a space.
This is a normal Cobol rule.
