Viewing External Data Elements

Jump to solution

I have some data elements defined as external and when I debug the program and try to do a quick watch or add to the watch list the value is not available.  Is this just an issue with external defined items?

Yes, this was an issue with external data items in a managed code application only. The same debugging query works fine for native applications.

This problem has been fixed and will be delivered in the next major release of Visual COBOL which is version 2.3 due to be GA in the Fall.

Thanks.
