Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v9
    The RDz Real Time Syntax Check (RTSC) displays the error,
    'ERROR_TOKEN' unexpected tokens ignored.
     in a COBOL program that uses the logical
     not (ᆰ) symbol.
    
    This error occurs even when the setting to allow
    the Logical NOT support in COBOL files is set:
    Window->-Preferences->Remote Systems->-z/OS->MVS Files and
    Properties-->Mapping  and the 'Logical NOT symbol'
    Both settings are enabled and the Logical NOT symbol can be
    set to any value, but still gets errors.
    
    ***************************************************
    Local fix:
    If the codepage for the remote system is set to 1142 then any
    logical NOT characters in SQL statements are not flagged, but
    they are still flagged outside of SQL statements.
