To create a debug information (.idy) file for layout file input

  1. Start Enterprise Developer and open a project that contains the COBOL program(s) on which you want to base a record layout file.
  2. On the Enterprise Developer project COBOL properties page, check Compile for debugging; then save the project. By default, Enterprise Developer automatically builds the project, and automatically generates an .idy file for each program in the project.
Note: Enterprise Developer writes .idy files to the output directory specified in your project properties.
