    I am trying to define a message model. Why is the structure missing when I try to create a new DFDL from a COBOL copybook INVOICES.cpy?

    This is what the INVOICES.cpy looks like:

    01 INVOICES.
    03 REQ-TYPE PIC X(5).
    03 CachierId PIC X(12).
    03 CUSTLastName PIC X(15).
    03 CUSTFirstName PIC X(20).
    03 CUSTCompany PIC X(20).
    03 CUSTAddr1 PIC X(12).
    03 CUSTAddr2 PIC X(12).
    03 CUSTCity PIC X(10).
    03 CUSTState PIC X(10).
    03 CUSTCountry PIC X(5).
    03 CUSTMail PIC X(20).
    03 CUSTPhone PIC X(15).
    03 CUSTDOB PIC X(8).
    03 PurchaseCount PIC 9(3).
    03 Purchase OCCURS 0 TO 21 TIMES
    DEPENDING ON PurchaseCount.
    04 PurchaseId PIC X(10).
    04 ProductName PIC X(10).
    04 Amount PIC 9(2).
    04 Price PIC 9(8)V99.

    What libraries are missing?

    Hi Steve, 

    Thanks for getting back to me. At least I have a reason for why this is happening. To be honest it's not a big problem. I'm using the developer edition. 
    I'm looking for an IIB Developer role. Any pointers for where I might find such a role?
