Kay, I think you can still compile with the assembler code option. That
should give you the required addresses.

Subject
COBOL question






Can anyone point me to a tutorial or documentation on how to find the
location of a working-storage field in the load module of a COBOL program?
(As opposed to finding it in a dump.) I do have a compile listing
available.

Re: COBOL question
"The LIST option is not required to find locations in the program. The MAP option should be sufficient. But working storage fields are not really ""in"" the load module. They pointed to by a base locator and an offset. I assume she wants it for some sort of debugging session, but I would need more information to help answer the question. Key questions are:

1. What compiler level
2. Online or batch
3. Reentrant or non-reentrant
