I have a sequential file or a GDG that has a few fields that contain data in binary, packed decimal format etc(they were defined in the program as COMP and COMP-3 etc). Which means i cannot see them and read them meaningfully when i browse the data. My client wants this file to be converted so that they can read the data. So my task now is to convert this format into numeric format to read it while browsing. I need to read the respective copybook to know the data format of the fields in the flat file or GDG.
I know how to reformat the data but not sure how to map the respective copybook to the flat file so as to know the input file format to convert them into the readable format.
Is there anyway that i can map the copybook to the flatfile in the REXX
