I suggest that you create a shell copy of your @COLORS file that is just
named COLORS and refer to that in your program. Then, when you run the
program, use and OVRDBF to refer your COLORS file in the program to your
@COLORS file in real life.

Is there a way to use a file name containing a special character in a COBOL program. When I try to use a file named @COLORS in the program I get a syntax error. I even tried using the name without the @ in the program and then override the file. Still not working.
