I have a COBOL Program. The PIC of many variables include PIC 9(6). I want to find all those variables and change PIC 9(6) to PIC X(6). Can someone tell me how can i do that using REXX and is there some other way of doing this.

I suppose that the definition of the field can be in the source library and in copy... and that this variable has an unique identification across the different programs(really important).

After this you must export a list of member and library, and so, but only in this moment, you will able to change your string.

Before the substitution is fundamental to know how the programs that you will find works because this kind of change is really delicate for all the procedure/pgms that are using the same file.

Substantially you need an impact analysis.

After this, if you need a sample I will give you, but check all the condition.
