Hello all,

I have a cobol program which performs XML PARSE.The XML PARSE function returns XML-CODE of 2 with cobol 3 compiler. The same function returns XML-CODE of 1 with cobol 5.2 compiler for the same input data. what can be the reason behind this and what can be the fix? Please advise on this.

The reason is that different compilers are NOT guaranteed to produce exactly the same results for every set of data, and the fix is to use a single compiler.

Have you looked at the discussion on XML-CODE starting on page 533 of the Enterprise COBOL V5.2 Programming Guide manual? If not, you need to start reading.
