I was just trying to use a COBOL plug-in for writing COBOL programs. The problem is: COBOL Eclipse plug-in does not allow me to write in column 1-7 when "Fixed Format" or "Variable Format" is selected. But syntax is alright then(Just check the comment). But my company's programming standards are such that I have to put some tags in column 1-7. Now if I select "Free Format" it does allow me to write in column 1-7 but all the syntax is screwed. Is there a way I cam fix this on my own?? Like is there a way I can modify "Fixed Format" so that I can write in column 1-7...

Hope someone can help me out on this....

Hello Vivek,

Sorry for late reply...

Using "Free format " , though, some tags you wrote in the head of the line(column 1-7) are treated as COBOL program. I suppose there may happen some sort of syntax error in the background parsing so that the syntax highlighting screwed.
