Reply with quote

Hi,

I have a requirement to compile a Cobol -Db2 program with older compiler version. Currently we have compiler version as Enterprise cobol v4.1 but a Cobol-Db2 program need to be compiled with Enterprise cobol v3.4. So how can I do that?
I have checked for this on the forum but didn't find any answer.On a place,got that need to give the correct loadlibrary with
the needed compiler version by steplib, then it can be done.Is it correct? If it is correct then what will be load library for Enterprise cobol v3.4. Please mention, if it is a standard load library.
Thank in advance...

Yes. Talk to your technical support staff. They should know where everything is and probably have some JCL.

you can start by understanding the above is not true.

then, you should realize that if there is a requirement to use a 'non-standard' / in this case older version of a compiler,
it is up to your management to provide the necessary info as in
what procedures to follow.

none of us work at your site, so we have no idea how the site is set-up.

this kind of info can only be obtained from you management or support staff.

all depends !
does Your organization have the version You need installed...
if NO ... You are out of luck
if YES ... nobody here can tell HOW because we know nothing about Your organization naming conventions
for both questions the proper way to go is ... ASK YOUR SUPPORT

... no other views needed icon_biggrin.gif
but just curious, why the requirement to use an older version ?

Why do you want to do this? (Possibly something you don't want to hear!?) What purpose does this serve?

could be part of a legacy system.

could be that whoever gave out the assignment,
does not know that often you can mix new/old versions of COBOL in same run unit.
