Hello all,

I need to write cobol programs that to process all types of RECFM for our testing.
Just a simple program read the file and write to the same format file.

F to F

FA to FA

VS to VS

VSA to VSA

I wrote now 2 programs.
1st one will handle RECFM=F,FB,FS and FBS
2nd one will handle V and VB
Any suggestions for the program to support all other types.
How many in total required? can it be handled in 3 programs?
Any advise would be appreciated.

JCL's were already defined by applications and I can't change the format in the JCL.

I should prcoess these types of files in the COBOL program.

Do not forget about the extended formats of the aforementioned RECFMs.
