Compile a program. Copy the first line of any page with the compiler name and version information and post it (using CODE tag) here.

Broadly speaking, Enterprise COBOL programs use LE, period. Earlier compilers may or may not use LE, depending on how old the compiler is.

Adding to Robert's reply, COBOL/370 and greater had LE integrated as part of the compiler, so this is a given.

LE usage in OS/VS COBOL and VS/COBOL (the predecessors to COBOL/370) was optional and site specific.

LE is the runtime language environment which includes callable services. LE handles the runtime options and language services for your COBOL program. You can tell if a program was compiled using the LE environment by listing the object phase module and locating the characters 'CEE' at the beginning of the module. You will also see towards the end of the module LE service routines as CEEBINIT and CEESTART.

Here's a programmatic method of determining whether LE is active or not in the given LPAR -

www.ibmmainframes.com/viewtopic.php?p=120571&highlight=#120571

As a failsafe, change the sub-program's base register from R12 to R3 as R12 contains the address of the CAA (Common Anchor Area) providing the caller is LE compliant.

As Jose said, I found LE service routines as CEEBINIT and CEESTART in my load module. That means i am working on LE enabled cobol.

Suggest you re-read the post you quoted from Robert. . . I added the emphasis.
