I know I have done this before, but now it is escaping me. How do you convert a CLIST library that is FB to VB? When I use ISPF =3.3 to copy the members, the sequence numbers stay on the right, which causes syntax errors.

Because some people like long code lines for complicated / multiple functions wrapped into one line of code.

Obviously not thinking too much of some poor sod that has to debug this in the future.

I can do that for one or two CLISTs, but my problem is converting a vendor's entire FB CLIST library to VB, while preserving the sequence numbers (which would involve moving them from cols 72-80 to 1-8). I know I could use DFSORT or SYNCSORT to do this, but I thought it would be such a common need that IBM would provide a more automated way, such as an option in =3.3 to preserve sequence numbers. I personally prefer FB to VB, and implemented that standard at my previous shop, but I just started with a new company that already has VB CLISTs entrenched as a standard.
