Question:
Are there any issues or PTFs related to running IDMSDC Cobol programs using Cobol release 6 or higher?
Answer:
For Cobol release 5 and higher PTFs see KB000032516.

Specific to release 6 or higher, our experience with clients running LE Cobol release 6 has shown that it will make more use of the XA REENTRANT POOL (additional runtime modules loaded) and that we recommend increasing XA REENTRANT POOL by 20% when moving to Cobol 6 or later and then monitor usage to see if any more may be needed.
