I found a posting in the archives from May 2001 that dealt with things to watch for when moving from OPM to ILE COBOL. One of the items dealt with NEXT SENTENCE. A reply claimed that in OPM COBOL, NEXT SENTENCE worked like CONTINUE (incorrect) while in ILE COBOL it skipped to the statement following the next period (correct). Does anyone have any more details? We have experienced some funnies with NEXT SENTENCE when END-IFs were added to our code but the funnies seemed to be when our application was run on Unix (Micro Focus COBOL), not AS/400. The archives search revealed no other entry for NEXT SENTENCE so clarification would be very useful. Thanks.
