Error description

  • A user is trying to do an XML PARSING with VALIDATING for
    a GROUP item, which is alphanumeric and should be allowed.
    
    He gets this error:
    IGYPA3344-S "VALIDATING" phrase identifier "THE-OSR (GROUP)"
                was not of category alphanumeric.  The statement
                was discarded.
    
    THE-OSR is coded as
    01 osr-len   pic 9(8) comp.
    01 the-osr.
      02 pic x(32000).
    The flagged statement is
      xml parse "document-name" validating with the-osr
         processing procedure "procedure-name".
    

Local fix

  • Change the flagged group to an elementary data item.

    The Enterprise COBOL compiler was not allowing identifier-2 in
    an XML PARSE VALIDATING phrase to be an alphanumeric group item.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The Enterprise COBOL compiler is changed to allow identifier-2
    in an XML PARSE VALIDATING phrase to be an alphanumeric group
    item.
