Thanks Denis - it is just RPGLE, no SQL. I've had the fun with SQLRPLGE programs and debug as well, but this one should be simpler.

When I started debug, it showed the correct source, then I pressed F10 to get back to the command line and invoked the program.  The first place it broke was not only not *inzsr, it was about 200 statements into the program - not even close to the first statement.

Here a few idea:

*INZSR in invoked only on the first call to a program if the previous call is not ended with *INLR, so it might be normal behaviour.

If the program is SQLRPG, there is some sort of pre process that goes on during compile (transform the SQL, you can see this in the compile listing). I have seen cases where this screwed up the debug view.

Hope this help

Objet : STRDBG source not matching using *LIST view

This is on v7r3, ptf group SF99876.  I'm using STRDBG on PgmA, which calls PgmB.

Both PgmA and PgmB are RPGLE programs that have been compiled with DBGVIEW(*ALL), no optimization.

Using F10 to step through PgmA when it calls PgmB, the debugger switches to PgmB and shows a statement in the middle of the program, not the first statement in the *INZSR subroutine.

I used F15 to switch between all 3 available listings (source, list,
copy) and they all show the same statement.

Call stack shows I'm in the correct programs.

The usual problem when I've encountered this before is I'm not in the right program, or the program pointing to the wrong source, or optimization has been done.  None of these are the current situation.
