Our COBOL COPY libraries have a blocksize of 16,000. I believe this was the limit on some of the older compilers. We still have some pre COBOL II programs around that have not been converted and keep the old COMPILER versions around (just in case).

I really see only three viable option for this.
The best would be to convert the code to current standards. This really is not a major task. And then you can use the resent compilers.
another is to put the code only into Endevor and then do a free standing compile/link edit. You will have to create a copy library at blksz=16000 and move all of the copybooks the program uses to this library.
The third option is to have the Endevor people reallocate the copy libraries at blksz=16000.
