Reference to undeclared column should result in RC08, instead of RC04

In the COBOL program an INCLUDE statement is used where a DCLGEN is declared. The copybook ZSTBF02 is attached.

When the COBOL source contains an SQL statement where a column is used which is not declared in the DCLGEN, a warning is issued in the listing. I copied a piece of the listing here:

000375 EXEC SQL

==000375==> IGYPS0209-W DSNH206I DSNHANAL LINE 375 COL 8 STATEMENT REFERENCES COLUMN

"ZSTBF02""REK_IBANS", WHICH IS NOT DECLARED IN THE SPECIFIED TABLE(S)

000376 SELECT REK_NR ,

000377 REK_IBANS ,

000378 PDCT_ID


It concerns the REK_IBANS field, where in the DCLGEN the column REK_IBAN is declared. When deploying the program after the compilation a bind will result in a failure.

We would like to see that the undeclared column name results in a RC08.
