Introduction:

We have an intermittent problem on a GENERATE in place where a compile (COBOL V6) completes with a RC=0004 and then fails trying to FP the object in a temporary PDS/E. 

A regenerate will complete without problem.

Question:

Why does a footprint request fail (C1G0256E MEMBER NOT FOUND) on the object deck for a COBOL v6.0 compile, when the regenerate completes ?

Environment:
COBOL v6.0
Answer:

Know problem with compiler. Contact vendor (IBM).
