I just recreated the old code condition and it worked this time. 

I don't have a clue why it didn't work before. We had tried it multiple
times, both in the debugger and from a normal call statement. Guess I'll
chalk this up to Keebler's elves...

Hello. Please note that this works too:
 01 a pic x value "S".               
 01 b pic x.                         
    88 BS VALUE "S".                 
    88 BN VALUE "N".                 
** ----------------------------------
 PROCEDURE DIVISION.                 
     SET BS TO TRUE                  
    if (a equal "S"                 
     and bS          )               
         display "( OK"              
     if  a equal "S"                 
     and bS                          
         display "  OK"
