Can we convert one sequential mainframe file from VB to FBA format? If yes, how?

Thanks for helping.

What are you going to use to generate the character for the "A" part, or is it already there in the first position of the VB (or even somewhere else)?

And what happens?

Can you show the input data you have and the output data/messages you are getting.
