JMR captures job details that are held on a daily JMRLOG file, it is used by the JMR process to retrieve jobs into JMR. I have about 50 daily jobs that produce exception codes and stats to their job sysout, I am attempting to automate my process of monitoring my daily job results by extracting info from the SYSP.JOBLOG.JMR22103, the data on this VB file is compressed.
I have run a simple SORT with a String Search to extract the data i am looking for into VB file, I would like to use a utility program to decompress the data.

Of course my other option is to capture my run stats and exception codes into a mod file from all my daily jobs by applying modification's to the JCL and the COBOL code. I am hoping for a work around, also this would provide me with details from previous jobs run over the last two years.

Here is the data in my file, unfortunately the form font shrinks the first line of data second and third line is the hex equivalent.

.b.å.A-Æ.paÎo.qs.j³
141C0C683987505A25F
325A010A57166C8251A
--------------------

I am not even sure if this is possible to do with a batch utility.
if you could provide previous post or direction, it would be appreciated.
Thanks

The vendor provides no manuals or support to aid you?

No, i don't believe the Vendor of JMR intended users to access the Daily logs for data to be extracted in the manner i am hoping for. These logs contain upwards of 100's of Million records, i am sure they are VB and data compressed to save space. I was hoping someone knew the Compression format to uncompressed/decompressed the data with some utility formula.
The data is unfortunately mixed Numeric and charter like you would find on an audit detail line.

Yes this was some help, it provides me with another option to access the JMR, logs with a query string search.
Thank you all for your help me resolve this challenge accessing JMR.
