Are you looking for tools? I do not know of any.
Do you know and understand assembler?
The only way to convert such that I know is to understand the logic and flow of the assembler program and write COBOL code to match.

This site claims to have done an automated conversion from assembler to cobol.

Other succesful automatic conversions were:

Hello,

The "COBOL" modules that are generated by any tool are NOT good code and are not maintainable. If you find a tool you think you'd like to try have them convert a couple of your complex assembler modules and look at the generated code.

This concern was in the forum recently and several people recommended that you understand what an assembler module is doing and then re-write it in COBOL. Do not try to convert line for line.
