Compiler option INVDATA is not working on COBOL6.3

Postby Misha786 » Fri Apr 22, 2022 5:35 pm

Hello -
I was trying to use compiler option INVDATA while compiling my cobol program using COBOL 6.3 compiler
I referred IBM document(i.e https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/cobol-zos/6.3?topic=options-invdata ) and accordingly here is what I tried in vain. I might be missing something or not using it correctly. Please let me know if anyone knows how to use it successfully

From the Enterprise COBOL for z/OS 6.3 Programming Guide manual:
If you're migrating from COBOL V4 or earlier versions and used NUMPROC(NOPFD) with COBOL
V4, use INVDATA(NOFORCENUMCMP,CLEANSIGN) (or simply INVDATA) and NUMPROC(NOPFD) with
COBOL V6.
Have you tried the manual recommendation of
NUMPROC(NOPFD),INVDATA(NOFORCENUMCMP,CLEANSIGN)
?

Yes Robert tried that ( i.e. INVDATA(NOFORCENUMCMP,CLEANSIGN) ) too. But same error message.

It sounds like its time to open a problem with IBM then.

Hi Robert
I was thinking the same but before raising a tkt with IBM help, I tested the same in another LPAR and to my surprise it worked in that.
So, now I am a bit confused what should be done because it is working in on one LPAR and not in another. Both of these are PROD lpars used by client.
Might be a good idea to contact both ZOS support team and IBM cobol support team. Any suggestion is always welcome.
