Error description

  • In Rational Developer for System z (RDz) 9.1.1, when you debug a
    COBOL program compiled with Enterprise COBOL Compiler version

    IF statement may be skipped.

    Rational Developer for System z (RDz) version 9.5.0 or
    2) Compiler the COBOL program with ARCH(7) or lower compiler
    option and use with RDz 9.1.x debugger.
    

Problem summary

  • There are some stepping problems that are causing us to take the
    wrong branch on the IF statement.
