XML-PARSE fails with exception 791043 when compiling using the XMLPARSE(XMLSS) directive

Problem:

Programs that use the XML-PARSE directive, fail to compile with an exception 791043 in Visual COBOL version 2.3 Update 2 and 3.0

Resolution:

In Visual COBOL 2.3 Update 2 and 3.0, the new parser used by XML-PARSE in XMLSS mode does not recognise the encoding "Windows-1252".

Changing the XMLPARSE directive to use XMLPARSE(COMPAT) or changing the XSD's encoding from "Windows-1252" to "ISO-8859-15" can be used as a workaround.

A fix for this compilation error will be available in the 4.0 version of Visual COBOL.
