Data Items in CPY

When debugging a program, how can I look at the value in a data item that is in a copybook.  If you go to the definition in debug mode, it opens the copybook and if you try to do a quick watch it says unable to evaluate the express.  The item is an record layout for a file I just read.

 

Thanks

RE: Data Items in CPY

Which Visual COBOL version are you using?

Is it Visual COBOL 2.1 update 1 or an earlier release?

If you are using VC 2.1 update 1 then you should really create a support incident with Customer Care and report this as a bug so that we can reproduce the problem and make sure that the problem gets fixed.

If you are using a release prior to VC 2.1 update 1 then you should try to upgrade to VC 2.1 update 1 and see if the problem has been resolved.

Thanks.
