Well, "COBOL for z/OS" means, in IBM's parlance, Enterprise COBOL...which, as Mr. Sample says, has never
had an intrinsic trace feature. It may well be that, in the past, you used a seriously obsolete compiler (IIRC, READY TRACE was made inefficacious in VS COBOL II). Use the "USE FOR DEBUGGING ON ALL PROCEDURES" directive instead.
