Question:
While trying to ADD/UPDATE a COBOL member, why do we experience an RC=08 in the LINK EDIT step (LKED EXEC PGM=IEWL): 
EW2322I 1220 3 NAME program1(R)
IEW2326E 1221 THE FOLLOWING INVALID RECORD HAS BEEN SEEN: NAME program1(R) 
Answer:
Linkedit input parms (SYSLIN) need to reside between columns 2 to 72.

Update the Endevor Processor accordingly
 
Additional Information:
Valid control statements for the linkage editor are ALIAS, CHANGE, ENTRY, EXPAND, IDENTIFY, INCLUDE, INSERT, LIBRARY, MODE, NAME, ORDER, OVERLAY, PAGE, REPLACE, SETCODE, and SETSSI.
Control statement operands can appear anywhere between columns 2 through 72.
