Problem:

When debugging code in Visual COBOL, arrays will not show an expandable set of values contained within the array, and will only show the first value in the array.

Resolution:

To be able to view the contents of an array while debugging in Visual COBOL you may have to set this option in the Visual Studio Tools menu.

You can set this by going to:

Tools > Options > Text Editor > Cobol > Miscellaneous

Here there will be the option:

Debug tooltip style for OCCURS items

You can change it to Expandable Tooltip or Value of Expression.
