Specifies a list of directories for the Compiler to search for copy files.




list-of-directories The directories to search. Use semicolons to separate the directories. Use quotes to surround the path if it contains spaces.


Default: COPYPATH($COBCPY), which means use the COBCPY environment variable to search for copy files
IDE equivalent: From the project's properties, expand Micro Focus > Build Path > Copybook Paths
Phase Syntax check
$SET None


You should only use the COPYPATH directive when compiling using the cob command line utility, and not when building programs from within the IDE.

When you use this directive, the Compiler does not search the COBCPY environment variable. Note that some of your COBOL development system's components rely on COBCPY being set to find copy files.

You cannot specify environment variables as a parameter for this directive.
