Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

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.
