Hello,

COBOl V6 has introduced a new compiler option NUMCHECK(BIN) which is giving ON SIZE ERROR for EIBCALEN because it is defined as PIC S9(4) COMP.

Code:
 IF EIBCALEN NOT = LENGTH DFHCOMMAREA


Where DFHCOMMAREA is 32120 bytes.

EIBCALEN is CICS reserved word definition so we cant change the length.

Any suggestion other than overriding the default NUMCHECK option during compilation?

Regards,
Santosh

rsantosh,

You can get around the issue if you had TRUNC(BIN) compiler option, but then COBOL 6.2 had supporting apar(PH11667) to override that too. here is the link to that

https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/apar/PH11667

So if your shop already had this ptf installed and since you cannot change EIBCALEN defintion, you are only left with overriding the NUMCHECK option. You need

Code:

NUMCHECK(BIN(NOTRUNCBIN))


Check this link which explains in detail about NUMCHECK option.

Hi Kolusu,

Thank you. In our shop default is TRUNC(OPT). So the only option we are left with is overriding the NUMCHECK.
