The programmer working on it says that she's doing the compile like so:

CRTBNDCBL PGM(IDOCKETGY/CCEXTRACT) +
SRCFILE(IDOCKETGY/QCBLSRC) SRCMBR(*PGM) +
OPTION(*SOURCE) CVTOPT(*DATETIME *DATE) +
DBGVIEW(*ALL)

Are you specifying CVTOPT(*DATE) on the compile? That will allow dates to
come into the program correctly.

Hi all. I've had a request to debug this issue and am having a bit of
a time at it. Here's my issue:

Sample PF TestPF:
BOA, char, 20 byes
FYA, char, 5 bytes
NBR, packed, 7.0
DATE, date, 10 (*ISO)

Sample LF TestLF
Key fields:
BOA
DATE

Many records have DATE field values of '0001-01-01' (I assume that's
*loval)

The COBOL program is trying to use LF, but is getting a key mapping
error on the logical. How do I get past that key mapping error in the
program? I'm happy to supply any more info as needed.
