You will now see your custom rule listed in the “Available code analysis rules” section > Click Apply and Close. Visual Studio: Analyse > Micro Focus Code Analysis Manager > Rule Set manager Tab > Click Browse > Locate your custom rule (on my machine Move Statement with char variable.General.xml is in C:\Users\kimh\Desktop\custom) > Select Folder > Click Update . Eclipse: Open the COBOL Explorer View or open the relevant source file in the COBOL editor, right click on the relevant source file/editor, on the context menu click on “Code Analysis” > Click “Other” > Select your custom rule (my case “Move Statement with char variable”) > Click Ok > Code Analysis View opens and after a few seconds any matches will be presented there. Visual Studio: Click right on either the source file in the Solution Explorer view or opened source file in Editor > on the context menu click on “Code Analysis” > Click on “Move Statement with char variable” entry > Micro Focus Code Analysis View opens but “Analysis completed with no results” is shown.
