Hi

I have a requirement where I need to convert a flat file to CSV file and then I may have to FTP/NDM the file.

Can you please suggest any utility or process to do the conversion in batch.


Thank You

Hello,

When i need to create a downloadable/delimited file i use STRING in a bit of cobol code. Typically, i use the tab character (x'05') for the delimiter as this does not occur in text data and is easily used after the download.

Make sure the file to be downloaded contains no packed-decimal or binary data.
