Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v9.5.1
    
    The Show Expanded Source action does not show the expanded
    source where the copybook is defined with single quotes and
    shows an "Unable to find Copybook" dialog.
    Reproducible with COBOL Editor :
    1) Add the following statement COPY MYCOPY1 and then implement
    Show Expanded Source option, Ctrl+Shift+E, and this will
    correctly show the applicable source.
    2) Add the same statement but with quotes surrounding ie COPY
    'MYCOPY1' and then implement Show Expanded Source option.
    On this occasion the source is not expanded and mouse hovering
    over the COPY 'MYCOPY1' will show a message "Unable to find
    Copybook 'MYCOPY1'".
    

Local fix

  • There is no known workaround at this time
    

Problem summary

  • See error description.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Updated Show Expanded source to check for and remove quotes
    around copybook names before trying to load the file.
