Viewing source code data with the Source Code Data editor

Display and review source code data to determine the relationships among the files you have chosen for a dependency build; for example, which COBOL files require copybook ABC. You can also use the data to debug a problem, or you can add data that the scanners did not collect.


  1. From the main menu, select Window > Open Perspective > Other > Resource, then click OK.
    The Resource perspective opens.
  2. In the Project Explorer section, right-click a COBOL file (.cbl) and select Enterprise Extensions > Open Source Code Data Editor.
    The Source Code Data editor opens.
    Note: You do not have to choose a COBOL file. You can choose any file whose source code data you want to view.
  3. In the Source Code Data editor, examine the sections and tabs to view all of the source code data associated with the file you selected in step 2.
