Title: how to get data area in Cobol?

Any idea why this doesnt work in v4.4?

I am trying to retrieve the data area DACOMPANY and place the contents into ws-company.

Compiler error msg is:

*   720  MSGID: LNC1326  SEVERITY: 30  SEQNBR:  021000                        
         Message . . . . :   'DATA-AREA' not defined name. Statement or clause ignored.


Thanks!

Accept ws-company from data-area for 'DACOMPANY'.
