I don't have access to Natural manuals, and every place I look for answers wants to charge me, so I thought I'd ask here. This question came up for a conversion. If the answer is yes, then I'll buy some manuals. If not, there's no point in wasting my money.

also, if Natural allows calls to other languages, how does it pass a parameter list?

One more question: can I access ADABAS without Natural?

Never mind. I found the free manual link posted in another response. I answered my own questions.

Thanks for letting us know. The manual was always going to be a good bet...

Just for reference, check this link, they explain calling Natural to COBOL call:
Code:

/Personal opinion On

If you still have question try writing PM/e-mail to "Ralph Zbrog". He is one of the members on this Forum and pretty expert with Natural/Adabas.

I appreciate the vote of confidence, Anuj.

For those too lazy icon_biggrin.gif to go to the Web-based documentation:

- Natural has a standard CALL syntax to access modules in other languages.
- On the mainframe, those other languages must use standard IBM linkage.
- If you don't have Natural (pity!), then access Adabas via add-on products for SQL, SOA, and ODBC.
