Error description

  • The column indicators in the Rational Developer for System z
    (RDz) PLI editor are for COBOL programs.
    
    For example, the '*A-1-B' starting in column 7 are not
    applicable to a PL/I program, these are only applicable to a
    COBOL program.  If the same PLI file is opened using the RDz
    LPEX editor then the ruler does not contain the '*A-1-B'.
