COBSQL Question

Hi All,

Is there any solution to use COBSQL directives with oracle pro*cobol with FREE or VARIABLE source format?

I've tried with variable sourceformat. The precompiled source (.cs9) is ok but the second phase of the compilation hang....

I'm sad to keep fixed format in Visual COBOL

Platform:Visual COBOL for eclipse with hub on linux.

Thanks.
Franck.

    I just tested this with Visual COBOL for Visual Studio and although it accepts the Pro*COBOL option of format=variable when I try to change the project directives to use sourceformat"variable" I receive the following:

    CSQL-F-047: Cobsql cannot be used with the SOURCEFORMAT directive

    This tells me that this is not currently supported as you suspected.

    I will check with development to see wat the plans are for supporting this.

    Thanks.
