Reply with quote

I am working on mainframe migration project. we are migrating from mainframe to AIX. in my program i am creating a report where at some condition output should be printed on next page. for this in cobol we use
"AFTER PAGE or AFTER ADVANCING PAGE" ( CHARACTER 1 is moved at first position and printer understands that it needs to go to next page)

My query is how to switch to next page in AIX cobol where AFTER word is not supported.

Please help.

Hello,

Which compiler are you using on aix? What does the manual for that compiler say about report output? See if that compiler supports "special-names" particularly C01 (see zero one).

The "1" is mainframe spacing, but unix also supports advancing the paper to the top of the next page.

We used MicroFocus cobol when moving code from the mainframe to unix and i do not recall changing the code to print reports correctly.

Not sure how you're getting your error. Please check this link:
http://www.elink.ibmlink.ibm.com/publications/servlet/pbi.wss?CTY=US&FNC=SRX&PBL=SC23-8567-00#

And you'll find that both AFTER ADVANCING and BEFORE ADVANCING are supported - for sequential files in IBM COBOL.
