File Not Found Errors

Visual COBOL and RM/COBOL differ in the environment variables that they use to locate program and data files.

If your source code produces a file not found error, ensure the correct paths are set in the correct environment variables. In Visual COBOL, set COBPATH to locate program files and COBDATA to locate data files. The RUNPATH environment variable used in RM/COBOL, is not used in Visual COBOL.
