           SPECIAL-NAMES.
               DECIMAL-POINT IS COMMA.
    
    points to a copybook that contains
    a statement such as:
    
               WHEN 500,00
                  Move 700,00 to TEST2
    
    You will see an error for the COPY statement in the program.
    
    The comma in the copybook is not being treated as defined by the
    
    use of SPECIAL-NAMES in the COBOL program.
