The ENTRY statement specifies secondary entry points for a procedure.
(Secondary entry points may also be defined by a PROCEDURE statement
which contains more than one statement label prefix). The ENTRY
statement also specifies the parameters, if any, associated with the
secondary entry point defined by a given ENTRY statement as well as the
attributes of the value to be returned by the RETURN statement if execution
entered the procedure at that ENTRY statement as a function reference.
An ENTRY statement is ignored in regular sequential processing.


The processing characteristics, which may be specified within the
OPTIONS option, may appear in any order and can be separated
by either blanks or commas. They are formatted as shown below:

COBOL|FORTRAN <additional-options>

yes. You need to change entry options as (cobol inter).

thanks.
