Error description

  • In Rational Developer for System z V9.5.1.3, COBOL copybooks
    opened in COBOL or LPEX editors may show invalid
    warning triangles when there is a typo or mispelled key word.
    The COBOL parser may overreach into other
    lines and report error for lines that have valid syntax. In the
    following example, PIC is mispelled for the
    X-RCN-TEST-DSN field, but the parser flags the rest of the lines
    in the X-RCN-PARAMETERS structure.
    
    
    MEMBER: TESTCOPY
    
        01  X-RCN-PARAMETERS.
            05  X-RCN-INPUT-DSN          PIC X(44) VALUE SPACE.
            05  X-RCN-TEST-DSN           PC X(44) VALUE SPACE.
            05  X-RCN-ENTRY-TYPE         PIC X(01) VALUE SPACE.
                88  X-RCN-ENTRY-NON-VSAM           VALUE 'A'.
            05  X-RCN-NVSMATTR           PIC X(01) VALUE SPACE.
                88  X-RCN-NVSMATTR-ACT-GDS         VALUE 'H'.
    

Local fix

Problem summary
