Newer versions of COBOL are linked as AMODE 31/RMODE ANY, whereas OS/VS COBOL had to be linked as 24/24. VS/COBOL II should have been linked as 31/ANY as this AMODE/RMODE were supported.

Unless the Assembler sub-programs require below the line addressability, you can re-link them as 31/ANY or add the AMODE and RMODE directives to the source.

However, if they do require 24/24, then the Caller (in this case, newer COBOL), must also be 24/24. You'd have to specify (at a minimum) the compile option DATA(24) as the default is DATA(31).

An AMODE 31 Caller cannot directly call an AMODE 24 sub-program, unless you use a linkage-assistant in-house written sub-program, as the high-order addresses off the R1 parmlist will not be recognized (max addressability is an AL3) and you'll wind up with a S0C4.

There were many improvements to HLASM over Assembler H (IEV90) and you should be able to Assemble H sub-programs using HLASM (ASMA90) without issues or perhaps, just a few.

Your mileage may vary....

Bill
