Hi,

Type N can only take digits not alphabets.

The difference between type N and I is that in type N the digits are treated are characters and acts according to length.

Execute below code and i hope it helps you understand:

```data: a(10) type c,
b(10) type n,
c type i.

a = '300'.
b = c = 300.

write:/ a,
/ b,
/ c.
```
