Hello,

When I am trying to compile a cics db2 program, I am getting bind error.

As a trail and error i changed the PARM parameter that I was using in my pre compilation step.

I have changed from
PARM='HOST(IBMCOB),QUOTE,SOURCE'

TO
PARM='HOST(IBMCOB),QUOTE,APOST,SOURCE,XREF'.

I really dont know the significance of APOST and XREF. I know these are compiler options, but still trying to know how the code got compiled by using the above options.

Kindly help me in this regard.

Thank you.[/img][/code]

XREF tells the COBOL compiler to generate a cross-reference and would have no impact upon your program. However, APOST / QUOTE determine whether quote marks (") or tic marks (') are used in your code. Using the wrong option would cause the compile to fail, since the alphanumeric literals will not be recognized if the wrong option is used.
