COBOL is not a second class citizen in this case - the SQL pre- compiler provides very few of the RPG compiler options either. Don't know why - guess they couldn't do them all and couldn't decide which to leave out!

Thanks Mike will take a look at that. Just figure something as important
as Activation group they would give it its own Parm like it does in a
normal ILE COBOL program. But then again COBOL always seems to be an after
thought :(.

We have our change management system set to do a two-step compile and it
handles the activation group. However since the time we wrote the system,
IBM added the COMPILEOPT parameter. You can specify
COMPILEOPT('ACTGRP(CELINAINS)') or whatever you want. One caveat, there
is no syntax checking or validation against the COMPILEOPT parameter. It
is simply passed through from the SQL pre-compile to the actual program
compile. That said, it does allow you to specify any of the parameters
not on the SQL compile commands.

[COBOL400-L] Can't set Activation Group in ILE SQL COBOL

Does anyone know why when I compile an ILE SQL COBOL program it shows it
going to Activation Group QILE, but in the COMPILE prompts I don't see
option to change it to something else like our company name? In COBOL
program the option is there but not COBOL SQL ILE program.

Running V5R4.

Activation group..................:QILE
