If your CICS/Assembler is pretty much "Vanilla", yes, they'll be some inconsistencies, but migration to CICS/COBOL should be straightforward.

To ensure proper migration, it would be wise that you engage personnel who are well versed in both CICS Assembler and COBOL. You may find some "opportunities" in the Assembler code that doesn't translate well to COBOL.

Hopefully, this is Command Level CICS/Assembler and not CICS Macro Assembler?

What version/release of CICS are you migrating from and what version/release are you migrating to?

What is your target COBOL version/release?

Bill

as I replied in another topic

the whole shebang for an Assembler to COBOL migration project
is not something people will be happy to share with You on a forum,
for two main reasons
the complexity of the task
the work done by each one of us to acquire that knowledge
and ...
defining such a plan is task suitable for an hefty consulting contract

and asking for a little help is allowed,
not so to ask be spoon fed with knowledge/experience we gained with many years of hard work icon_cool.gif
