Summary: A COBOL Version 3.00 program with key trapping may encounter the “That key has no meaning here” run-time message. The message can be caused by one of the following: 1. The function keys have been disabled. Note that this is the default. This may be changed by using the ADISCF utility which in turn updates a configuration file called ADISCTRL. 2. The function keys have been enabled by using ADISCF, but ADISCTRL, cannot be located by the program. This file must be in the same directory as the program, or at least the DOS environment variable COBDIR should point to the directory where it is located.
