Question Title Does Oracle Pro*COBOL work with isCOBOL?
To use Pro*COBOL, compile with the isCOBOL -cp option to enable full POINTER support. This is necessary because the Pro*COBOL precompiler translates EXEC SQL statements to a C API that passes COBOL data as pointers and saves them internally to be used when needed.

A potentially better alternative is to use isCOBOL ESQL which supports a number of Pro*COBOL extensions allowing Pro*COBOL users to migrate easily. Contact your Veryant representative for more information.
