Problem COBOL-CICS Program DFHAID/DFHBMSCA does not compile

Postby rogerb » Thu Aug 16, 2018 10:38 pm

Good afternoon everybody.
I don't know if this post should be placed in here, or in IBM COBOL or in JCL, so I apologize if it's in the wrong place.
Now that my COBOL program is working well and doing what's expected, I've decided to add more functionalities.
In the WORKING-STORAGE SECTION I've added:

COPY DFHAID.
COPY DFHBMSCA.

When I go to the JCL to compile the COBOL - CICS program I get error (MAXCC=12).
The 2 lines above were the only thing changed in the program and previously I compiled with success (MAXCC=0).
I tried only with DFHAID and I get error (MAXCC=12).
Then I commented DFHAID out, and I compiled only with DFHBMSCA, as a result, I also get error (MAXCC=12).

Please help me.

Thank you,
Roger

Hello.

This is the JCL code I'm using to compile the COBOL - CICS program.

read the appropriate CICS and COBOL manuals to understand the required dataset organisation for the libraries involved in the compile process
and ... remember - a forum is not a substitute for proper training

You've got a member name specified on SYSLIB -- COPY statement copy in members of a PDS, so you should NEVER have a member name on a SYSLIB statement.

Thank you for your answers.
I have tried to study several manuals but I don't know to which CICS and COBOL manuals Mr. Enrico-Sorichetti is referring.
I searched online and I found this one but I don't know if this is the one he was talking about:

https://www-01.ibm.com/servers/resource ... 0_v2r3.pdf

I changed the line in the JCL according to the advice of Mr. Robert Sample, now it's like this:

//SYSLIB DD DSN=DFH320.CICS.SDFHCOB,DISP=SHR

But when I compile, it still gives error (MAXCC=12).
I opened that dataset, and I noticed that some of the error messages produced in the compilation seem to be related with the banner that appears before the copybook.
For example, when I open the dataset DFH320.CICS.SDFHCOB(DFHBMSCA) I see this:

Is it possible this banner is the cause of the problem ?

what about googling for ...

cobol programming guide
cics application programming guide

together with the relative PROGRAMMING REFERENCE manuals

Thank you, Mr. Enrico-Sorichetti.
I'm following your advice.
But now I would like to ask your help, in order to know if I can delete (or comment out) the banner that appears in the beginning of the DFHBMSCA.
When I see the following error messages in the compilation:

000061C */* @BANNER_START 02

000061==> IGYDS0002-E A character other than "*", "D", "/" or "-" was found i
blank was assumed.

000061==> IGYDS0001-W A blank was missing before character "_" in column 13.
assumed.

000061==> IGYDS0009-E "ANNER" should not begin in area "A". It was processed
area "B".

I think they are mentioning, this banner:


* @BANNER_START                           02                    *


Thank you,
Roger

P.S.: If, during this or any other situation I was considered as inconvenient or disrespectful, that was not my intention.
I always appreciate all the advices that I've been receiving in this forum.

No, it's more than likely the fact that you have edited the banner that is the problem.

Show us this:
