# class-control - tip

Note:  In a Native COBOL program, if you are using the "CLASS-CONTROL." subsection in order to define your classes (to be used in later invocations of managed classes from your native program)... note that if you have more than one class definition to be defined in class-control... that you can only use one period within this subsection.  Else (if you have more than one definition and end each with a period), you will get syntax type errors such as "PROCEDURE DIVISION missing or unknown statement" and "COBOL Division or Section header encountered in incorrect order".
