Reply with quote

Hi,

I have to write to 2 files using a cobol and ezt program of same logic using the same corresponding eztmac and cobcopy copybooks.

The ezt version of the copybook uses MASKS(V,R,X) and since there is no masking in cobol, the values are not the same in the files(though the data looks the same in both the files, in the unformatted mode we can see the differences caused by storage:( ).
Is there anyway we can implement the masking logic in cobol or is there any other logic for implementing this kind of storage issue????
Plz help icon_cry.gif icon_cry.gif

Thanks in advance...

Could you please post some data in BBcode format so we can just what you mean by this?

Where did this "MASKS(V,R,X)" come from?
Can you point us to some reference?
