We resently upgraded one of our systems and it uses the Informix ESQL/COBOL software as a precompiler for Micro Focus. We are having preblems when our cobol programs have an unmatched seingle quote, even in comments and display statements. As an example:

DISPLAY "CAN'T OPEN FILE".

and

*The section will allow the user's settings to be preserved while
*the program executes.

Both of these statments are causing errors in the precompile step. The errors is:

esqlcob: "CM1100.eco", line 23: Error -33005: Incomplete string.

On our old system this worked, now it doesn't. HELP, the programmers are getting pissy.

Thanks,
Larry
