RM/COBOL Codewatch Version 7

Attention Representatives or Users,

    I currently have the RM/COBOL Version 7.0 and I can't get Codewatch to display the source code screen when I get the workspace configured and click the 'Run' Option.  It displays the breakpoint screen and the runtime debug screen, but not the screen where the source code is.  I want to be able to pull up the screen with the source code highlighted during execution of the runtime in Codewatch and I'm unable to do so.  It also doesn't show the source code (.cbl) in the "Programs" or "Files" window on the left side of the screen as well.

If anyone can help me I would appreciate it greatly.

As you are likely aware, this is a really old version. The only thing that comes to mind: did you compile with the Y=3 option to put the full debugging information into the COB files?

Uwe,
Thank you for your help. I tried that, it didn't work. I later found that I have to write a "stub" program to call the program I wish to debug in Codewatch. Codewatch will pull up the source and debugging information on the called program once the "stub" program executes. I can debug and trace the program easily from there.
