I couldn't locate my input when I use select assign to '../../../' in a native cobol project

Good day.


Here's the piece of code that has being going through my head.

*******************************************************************************

file-control.
*
select my-file
assign to '../../../files/myfile.dat'
organization is line sequential.

*******************************************************************************

I keep getting below error:
MicroFocus.COBOL.Program.COBOLFileHandlingException: ''../../../files/myfile.dat' : 9/009 (ANS74)
9 Directory not found'

I wanted to retain '../../../' as part of the directory. Can anyone help me please?

Thanks a million!
