Accessing MF COBOL Isam Files With VB6
In order to utilize the user interface capabilities of VB I must be able to access, read, write and update many files within current COBOL Isam files. Some of these files will continue to also be accessed by COBOL applications. I am looking for ideas, or more specifically some form of .ock or .dll that could isolate the handling of the isam routines from the VB programer.

For Anybody Who Remembers COBOL
I have to generate a text file which will be input into a mainframe. Im pretty sure they use COBOL because within their file layout definition they are using X(5) which I remember from COBOL class is a string of 5 characters, and 9(2) which is a number of 2 digits. But I dont remember what is 9(7)V99
So if any of you paid attention in class (unlike yours truly) and remember this please lemme know? Thanx!

Using NetExpress 3.1 COBOL Dll's In VB6?
I have a legacy COBOL system that I maintain in NetExpress 3.1. I am planning on converting the whole system to Visual Basic 6 (long irrelevant story). The legacy system has HUNDREDS of batch reports that I would like to access from my new GUI.
I know that my NetExpress suite can create .dll files so I was thinking of packaging the batch reports as dlls and calling those dlls from VB. My question is whether or not I will need the NetExpress COBOL runtime in order to process those dlls when called from VB? Has anyone ever tried this?
BTW, I already know how to convert the data types when passing parameters.

Anyone With COBOL Exp?? COBOL Datatype-> VB Datatype
We have this problem now where we need to convert COBOL Comp-3 datatype to a VB datatype.
The database used is Pervasive (Btrieve) and many of the types are COBOL Comp-3 (decimal) with sizes ranging from 6 to 9
When the size of a filed is 8, we can use a Double. We are not sure for size 6, 7, and 9.
Does anyone know how to make the conversion?
COBOL Comp-3 -> EBCDIC -> VB or some other way?
Some website I can look at?

Reading A Cobol File
I'm trying to read a micro focus cobol file into a text file using VB6 and have been unsuccessful. I'm unfamiliar with the format and just using the basic file handing in VB pulls in garbage and tries to read it like a regular text file. Here is what the cobol file structure looks like:
05 CA-COMPANY-NO PIC X(06).
05 CA-ACCOUNT-NO PIC X(15).
05 CA-LAST-UPDATED PIC X(08).
05 CA-RECORD-STATUS PIC X(01).
05 CA-ACCOUNT-NAME PIC X(30).
05 CA-BANK-NAME PIC X(30).
05 CA-BANK-ADDRESS-1 PIC X(30).
05 CA-BANK-ADDRESS-2 PIC X(30).
05 CA-BANK-CITY PIC X(15).
05 CA-BANK-STATE PIC X(02).
05 CA-ACCOUNT-TYPE PIC X(01).
05 CA-TRANSIT-ROUTING PIC X(09).
05 CA-EFT-ORIGINATOR-ID PIC X(10).
05 CA-ACCOUNT-BALANCE PIC S9(9)V99 COMP-3.
Is there some kind of conversion that needs to be done on the file in order to read it?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
Call Cobol DLL From VB Com Object
I have a VB com object as a wrapper for executing a cobol dll from an asp. I am new to asp, and also new to vb as well although I do learn quickly.
My asp calls the vb com object, which in turn should call the cobol dll but I get the following error
WrapEXINCOR error '800a0035'
File not found: KyposEXINCOR.DLL
Here is the code from my vb .cls file
Private Declare Sub JMPCINT2 Lib "f3biprct.dll" ()
Private Declare Sub JMPCINT3 Lib "f3biprct.dll" ()
Private Declare Sub ADJCLAIM Lib "KyposEXINCOR.DLL" (Lactcode As String, Lclmrec As String)
Private Sub Class_Initialize()
Private Sub Class_Terminate()
Public Function CallExincor(actcode As String, clmrec As String)
Dim Cactcode As String
Dim Cclmrec As String
Cactcode = actcode
Cclmrec = clmrec
Call ADJCLAIM(Cactcode, Cclmrec)
clmrec = Cclmrec
I have tried everything under the sun. Permissions, Full Path names, putting the dll in the local folder and calling for it there ....... im pulling my hair out.
Reading A Cobol Copybook In VB?
I'm looking into reading Cobol copybooks into VB so that I can use that information to make files through VB that follow the copybook. I've searched around to see if there is any code that would read through one and extract the PIC information from the copybook. It's fairly easy to do until you get to and OCCURS statement (which is doable) but the REDEFINES statements would be killers in my opinion. Is there any code out there that anybody knows of that might accomplish this feat? I can get it to work on simple copybooks but some of the ones I'm trying to parse are pretty daunting. Even if the VB reformatted the copybook or something that'd work too.
VB Front For COBOL Programs
I want to create a front end in VB to access the programs written in COBOL. This front end should accept some parameters from the user and replace some of the variables in the COBOL template program.

Thanks in advance.

Check If File Open By COBOL Program Before Using In VB App
I have browsed through Tek-Tips using "Check if File Open" in VB 5&6 Forum as well as extensive searching out on the web for find an answer to my challenge.
In my VB program, I need to first check to see if a COBOL program is done writing data to a file before I go and list the file as ready to use in my app.
thread222-1437198: File Lock Problem has a code snippet I tried to use which did not work.
The way I am testing is to open up a simple .TXT file with Notepad, leave it open, then I run my VB program which will search for the file name in a directory and if present list it. I need to further filter to see if the file is open before I throw it as an option in a list box.
Using the code snippets found in the above mentioned thread and other similar snippets on the web, the file opens in my VB app as if it were not already open by Notepad.
Does anyone know how to code in VB to check for a file being already opened by a non-VB program (such as Notepad or a COBOL program)?
Reading A Indexed Cobol File With Visual Basic
Just wondering if it's possible to read a indexed .dat file with visual basic. I'm converting a old cobol program to visual basic.

RECORD KEY IS month-srce-loc". They were also using the start and low values command to read the file. I've tried reading the file randomly in visual basic but doesn't turn out right. Any help would be awesome.

Help To Read From Files
In a Notepad file, amidst a jumble of text there are keywords and numbers associated to that keyword, specifically 2 keywords and 2 different sets of numbers that correspond to the keywords. For example, the keyword NUMBER precedes a 6 digit number, and the keyword ALPHA precedes an alpha-numeric number, both of which are contained within brackets. To illustrate:
texttexttexttexttexttexttext NUMBER  texttexttexttexttexttexttexttext ALPHA [ABC123DEF] texttexttexttexttexttexttexttexttext NUMBER  texttexttexttexttexttexttexttexttext ALPHA [ABC123DEG]... etc.
In this Notepad file, this means that ABC123DEF is the number that belongs to 100001 and ABC123DEG belongs to 100002, etc.
I have an Excel spreadsheet that has the 100001, 100002, 100003... etc. in a column. I am trying to write a program that will read through that Notepad file and find the ALPHA number, then put that number in the cell next to the corresponding NUMBER number in Excel. Hehe, sorry is this confusing? I can clarify further if need be.
When trying to write this program however, I am at a loss of how to start. I am trying to tell the program to read until the word ALPHA, but I don't know how to do that. I am not asking anyone to write this all out for me, but just looking for someone to guide me in the right direction. I would like to try this myself, as the concept seems pretty simple enough. It's just that I'm not sure exactly how to start. I also have many more questions but I will hold off until later. Any suggestions are most welcome. Thanks =).
