We are migrating Workbench 4.3 COBOL to Visual COBOL 2.3 using Native Project. The programs have been in production since 2001. We are using the Sybase precompiler COBSQL/COBPRE and have the database connection information in SQL.INI file. I successfully tested connection to Sybase with ISQL command including a table selection. However VC does not seem to identify the use of SQL.INI for connection.
I am thinking this is a configuration issue. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
The program uses the following syntax. Host variables do get set properly.
IDENTIFIED BY :CA-SYB-PASSWORD
DECLARE @DBNAME VARCHAR(32)
SELECT @DBNAME = RTRIM(:CA-SYB-DB-NM)
