Only compile one program

I have Visual COBOL Personal Edition with Visual Studio 2012, running on Windows/8

I have set up a Project with several programs in it

When I Build the Project it tries to compile each source member within the Project

And it comes up against the 2200 Procedure Division line limit fairly easily

If I have, say, 10 programs in a Project and I change one program, how can I just compile/prepare that one program

Is it possible?

    I tried those Visual COBOL In A Nutshell videos and they were not really very helpful - I was still adrift after having watched them

    I cannot say they are tutorials

    They are overviews really

    I have watched about one third of them and I cannot recall a reference to a page in the manuals within them

    What works best is advice direct from another person who has been there and done that before

    This Forum provides that kind of assistance

    Thanks for your help, and also from Scot, for making me think about what I was trying to do

    And for your advice on which documentation to read - that actually did the trick

    In my career I have had some excellent help from Product Support people

    They direct you to a page in the manual that answers your question

    I am now up and running (with multiple Projects within my Solution) and this product is very good

    Very good indeed

    It's a pleasure to use

    It runs very fast on Windows/8 and is reliable for me so far

    Net Express 4.0 is excellent but this one goes ahead from there in Big Steps
