Guys,

We are converting COBOL copybooks to EASYTRIEVE so the programmers can use EASYTRIEVE to make reports.

Unfortunately in the COBOL compile spool the definition offsets are in HEX.

Is there a option on compilation so the spool will give the offsets in decimal? That way I could literaly type in the offsets instead of computing Hex into decimal.

Thanks!

If you search the CA PRODUCTS section I think you will find several topics about an easytrieve conversion aid for converting COBOL copybooks to easytrieve.

Hello,

Use CBLCNVRT. It reads a cobol layout and generates the corresponding Easytrieve definition.

There are several topics in the forum.

It is part of the Easytrieve product.

Hello,

A bit of qualification - it reads a compile listing as input.

What i do is create a tiny shell program and only "compile" the layout i want converted to Easytrieve.
