Error description

  • In Rational Developer for System z V9.5.1, the COBOL editor
    incorrectly flags syntax in table definition. The COBOL editor
    should resolve the reference to the data item within the context
    of table definition by default and not consider the other
    references to the data item. Here is a link to the RDz Knowledge
    Center where it is explained:
    https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSQ2R2_9.5.1/com.ibm
    .ent.cbl.zos.doc/PGandLR/ref/rlddeasc.html?lang=nl
    
    In particular, the last bullet is important in this context:  If
    a key is specified without qualifiers and it is not a unique
    name, the key will be implicitly qualified with the subject of
    the OCCURS clause and all qualifiers of the OCCURS clause
    subject.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • COBOL Editor incorrectly flags syntax in table definition in
    case of processing data items with an OCCURS clause.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
