[archive] Runtime with two COBOL types

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 29 April 2005]

Can programs co-exist in any way with any runtime setup where some are COBOL 74 and some are COBOL 85?
I know that FILE_STATUS_CODES appears to be related to a single runtime. We would like to convert slowly to COBOL 85 but keep our current COBOL 74 programs alive without converting yet.

I think I resolved this by noting there is a SET ENVIRONMENT we can append to the top of our programs
