Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi,

As fas as I’m aware there is no such thing as RPGCOBOL – there is RPG and there is COBOL and there are various versions of both programming languages. Maybe they’re asking for RPG/COBOL (i.e. RPG and/or COBOL)?

Regards,

Martin Gilbert.

Hi,

In addition to Gilberts answer – there is a confusion of expressions sometimes, I found the same error in an jobdescription sent to me: it was ILECOBOL they where looking for (RPGCOBOL is a nonsense).
