E-COB: Random Cobol Programs Fail with "Compile error for <program>.obj" when Compiling COBOL Programs with CBLBLD.bat or CBLMAKE.bat (Doc ID 2700802.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 30, 2020

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.56 and later
Generic Windows

Symptoms

Sample Environment:
-------------------------
Tools 8.56.20
HCM 9.2 Test environment
Net Express 5.1 wp6  and Visual COBOL Build Tools compilers
Windows 2016

After applying tax updates, when compiling all cobol programs using cblbld script, some cobol programs fail to compile. When the compile script is run again, a different set of cobol programs fail to compile. i.e cobol programs that compiled in the previous compile might fail during this run and some cobol programs that did not compile in the previous run, might compile in the current run.  

A <program> .lis file is generated for the programs that fail to compile, but there is no error in the lis file.   Issue replicated with Net Express 5.1 wp6 and Visual COBOL Build Tools compilers.


Sample compile output:
-------------------------------
Compile error for PAPCBENC.obj
Compile error for PAPXAERN.obj
Compile error for PSPBIENR.obj
Compile error for PSPDCRUN.obj
