All,

Could anybody tell me how to find out the version of the COBOL used in a COBOL program. I know the compiler list gives the Version used.
But this requires me to compile each and every program to find it out.
Any other easy method please.

Thanks
Selva

Try Gilbert Saint-Flour's website for LOADXREF - Load-Library and Load-Module Analyser which will get you (among other things):
* for each load-module:
o program's member name
o program hash-code (8 hex digits)
o link-edit date (YYYY-MM-DD)
o length (hex)
o RMODE, AMODE
o link options (RENT, REUS)
o dsname
* for each CSECT in each load-module:
o name
o symbol type (CSECT, ENTRY)
o offset (from start of load-module)
o length (hex)
o Rmode/Amode flags
o Reference flags (ERef)
o hash-code (8 hex digits)
o compiler's abbreviated code
o compiler's signature (e.g. 5740CB103)
o compiler's version/modification (e.g. 0201)
o compilation date (YYYY-MM-DD)
o compilation option string (COBOL only)
o user data

Just look at AMBLIST this will give you what compiler was used,
otherwords the IBM Product ID for each compiler.
