You may find that a project converted from Net Express to Visual COBOL does not build, it shows errors saying that words such as HEADING, BOOLEAN,ATTRIBUTE are reserved words. In Net Express all built without error.


These words such as: HEADING,BOOLEAN,ATTRIBUTE are reserved words in Visual COBOL, you can use the REMOVE directive  in the additional directives textbox , found in the project properties in your Visual Cobol project, to exclude these as reserved words, allowing for a successful build in Visual COBOL.

For example, REMOVE "HEADING"
