Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    This issue affects users who compile COBOL applications against
    the MQ COBOL libraries.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    MultiPlatform
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    A configuration error within the environment used to generate
    the MQ COBOL libraries meant that additional symbols were
    incorrectly included.
    
    These symbols could not be resolved, leading to the error above
    being reported by the compiler.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The environment used to build the MQ COBOL libraries has been
    updated so that the incorrect additional symbols are not
    included in the libraries.
