Hi,

Can anyone suggest a tool to convert the Easytrieve file layout to a COBOL copybook?

Thanks,
Mohan

I remember that someone on this forum mentioned an IBM utility for this, but at the time the posting and my interest was the opposite. I found this statement "The IBM Migration Utility tool can convert Easytrieve to COBOL" on this web page www.ibm.com/software/os/systemz/telecon/oct2/
I know that such a utility exists but I have not actually seen it.

Please provide any tool in REXX or any JCL which could solve the purpose to change record layout of file in Easytrieve format to that in COBOL.

Hello,

Will this convert Easytrieve layouts to cobol without converting the code?

Many people want to create a "cobol copybook" from an Easytrieve definition, but have no intention of replacing the Easytrieve code. . .

I do not think that such tool exists. You can prepare a tool using Rexx to read the layout and convert it to a COBOL copybook. I do not think it will be a big deal.

I used that tool some years ago - do not remember details.
Link is still alive, and there could be some changes on site,
I believe it would be better just try that page:
