Error description

  • Abstract:
    
    Attempts to generate a data bean from a COBOL copy book that
    contains an underscore character '_'  in the data-name results
    in the error:
    
    'IGYDS0027-S Non-COBOL character(s) were found starting with '_'
    in column 23.  The characters were discarded.'
    
    Problem:
    
    If the COBOL copy book uses an underscore character '_'  in the
    data name , the COBOL importer will flag the following
    syntax error: 'IGYDS0027-S Non-COBOL character(s) were found
    starting with '_' in column 23.  The characters were discarded.'
     The COBOL importer does not accept the underscore character '_'
     as a legal character for data name.
    
    The underscore character '_' is now supported in user-defined
    words such as data-names and program-names.
    Underscores are also supported in the literal form of program
    names.
    
    The COBOL importer needs to be updated to support the underscore
    character.
    
    Refer to Enterprise COBOL v4r2 documentation:
    
    http://publibfp.dhe.ibm.com/epubs/pdf/igy3lr50.pdf
    
    Local fix:
    
    Replace the underscore character '_' with '-' in the data-names.
