Comparison of the Numeric Operand with Nonnumeric Operand:
The numeric operand can be compared to the nonnumeric operand subject to the restrictions which are as follows.
(i) The numeric operand should be an integer data item or integer literal.
(ii) Both the operands should have similar USAGE (DISPLAY or some form of the DISPLAY).
During the time of comparison, the numeric operand is treated as if its value were moved to an alphanumeric item were then compared to the nonnumeric field.
