There is a link to the manuals at the top of the page. What did the COBOL Language Reference and Programming Guide manuals tell you when you looked? The answers are in the manuals -- although it is important to note that the answer differs depending upon whether or not the modules are dynamically loaded or not.
In my case the programs are dynamically loaded.The manual also says that cancelling a program will result in the cancel of all the programs that it calls.I guess the manual is referring to both static calls and dynamic calls that the program makes.
