I work with Natural mostly and have seen many COBOL programs called from Natural. But, I have not seen any examples of a Natural program being called from COBOL. Is this possible? If so can someone please give some sample code to accomplish this?

If you have a licensed Natural version, you can use the 3GL CALLNAT Interface to call a Natural subprogram from COBOL. Just search the manuals (great examples, also).

Thanks for the info. Would it be in one of the manuals on this site? In the Natural or COBOL manual?

Hello,

No, the product manuals for Natural are covered by copyright (as far as i know) and we may neither post nor link to copyright material.

If your organization is licensed to use the product, you can sign up for support here:
https://advantage.webmethods.com/

I believe you can then download all of the material you want for free.
