Fixes are available
Closed as program error.
Rational Developer for Z - v9.5.1 When having several occurrences to replace in a COBOL source code file, the replace function works correctly only on the first occurrence. If the "Replace" button is hit a second time after having done the first replacement, the newly replaced text is updated. Open a cobol program; Hit CTRL+F to open the the wizard, Enter "IBM" in "Find" field, Enter "TEST" in "Replace" field, Click "Find" button, Click "Replace" button, Click "Replace" button again. The text on the line of the previous replace gets reduced after the first replace. IBM - replace with MB IBM COBOL FILE becomes MB COBOL FILE then MBCOBOL FILE then MBOBOL FILE Each replace is modifying three characters even though the string to be replaced no longer matches.
