How can a DEC cobol program be loaded into Revolve without stalling..?

Problem:

How can a DEC cobol program be loaded into Revolve without "stalling"..?

The project contains DEC cobol and copybooks.

Revolve starts the parsing process and "stalls" on various programs added to the project.

How can this be avoided..?

Resolution:

To get the program to load using DEC cobol, and the project to parse successfully,  follow these steps...  

1.  Create a project.

     When propmpted to add components, click NO.

2.  From the UTILITIES menu, choose OPTIONS, then on the COMPONENT PARAMETERS tab, set the following....

      TYPE = COBOL

      VERSION = DEC

      END COLUMN NO COMMENTS - this must be checked on.

      STARTING COLUMN = 1

      Click OK.

3.   Add components to the project using the red + icon and progress as with any other Revolve project.
