Get storage

I am trying to do a ""get storage"" using LENGTH and POINTER, but the IDMS pre-compiler is giving me syntax errors. The manual says ""COBOL 85 only"" for these parameters. I (perhaps foolishly) assumed that this meant ""COBOL 85 and above"". Was I wrong?

Re: Get storage
"It should work. Do you have an example of what you are coding and the errors you are getting? If the GET STORAGE is inside of an IF or something that could be a problem, you may need a semicolon as a delimiter - have you tried that?
