To set properties on individual files in a project:
To guarantee that a directive set in a project or build configuration does not apply to a particular file, you must explicitly specify NO<DIRECTIVE> (for example, NOLOCALSOURCEFORMAT or NODATAMAP).
The SQL compiler directives you have selected appear in the SQL Directives text box.
The following functionality is only supported for native COBOL.
Standalone files are files that are opened in the IDE without a project.
When compiling a standalone COBOL program, the IDE first searches for the program's symbols file (.idy) which includes the Compiler directives to use. It searches for the file either in the location of the COBOL program or in any directory specified in Window > Preferences > Micro Focus > COBOL > Standalone Files > Program Symbols (.IDY). If no program symbols file is found, the IDE uses the Compiler directives specified on the Compile properties page in Window > Preferences > Micro Focus > COBOL > Standalone Files.
To specify Compiler directives for compiling standalone files in the IDE:
For example, to specify the locations of any copybooks used in the standalone file when the copybooks are not in the same location, set the COPYPATH Compiler directive, COPYPATH(<location1>;<location2>;...).
If you have changed these directives, to reset them to the default values, click Restore Defaults.
