Have you tried the Cobol manuals to see what they say?

Have you tried removing the Program-Id from your program? Might indicate it has some significance.

Browse your Object or Load module, you'll see the Program-id name.

Try doing a "static" call to a sub-program - how does that work?

Look at your link-edit output. Anything interesting?

I suggest that, giuven that level of knowledge, you should join the beginners and students forum. And get a book on COBOL and read it.
