Resolution

C1G0265I  PROCESSOR GROUP CB3 FOR THIS ELEMENT WAS OBTAINED FROM PRIMARY ELEMENT RECORD
SMGR136I  ELEMENT VVLL 0101 CHANGES INCLUDE 39 LINES INSERTED AND 7 LINES DELETED
SMGR124C  99% BASE STATEMENTS DELETED AND/OR NEW INSERTS EXCEED 99% OF BASE

The SMGR124x is an informational message. The request resulted in a regression on the base level of the Element by  deleting XX% of the original statements or inserting new statements (or both) equivalent to YY% of the base level. Regression occurs when either XX or YY is greater than the maximum permissible level specified in the associated Element type record. This message is produced when REGRESSION SEVERITY=C on the type definition.

So you need to take a look at the type def screen: 

Things that should be reviewed:

1. Modify regression percentage - what is currently set? Should the value be ncreased or decreased?   

REGRESSION PERCENTAGE THRESHOLD IS 50 |  

Specifies the maximum acceptable regression percent for Elements of this Type. Specify a numeric value between 0 and 99, inclusive. If you are creating a Type definition and do not specify this clause, the value defaults to 50. The use of a regression percentage of 0 turns off regression testing for that Type -- no change or base regression messages are issued. If the delta storage format for this Type is full-image delta or log delta format, the regression percent must be 0.

                        
2. Change REG SEV to 'warning' level.   

REGRESSION SEVERITY IS INFORMATION | WARNING | CAUTION | ERROR

Identifies the severity of the error message that issues when Endevor detects regression. The default is CAUTION.

                               
3. Check if compare is correct, ie. not comparing irrelevent data - for cobol it is typically 7-72 
4. Expect higher percentages with smaller source elements.
