Unanswered: Convert Cobol Microfocus Files to MS Access
I have a series of .dat and .idx files relating to one application which have been developed initially in Cobol Microfocus. I need to move the data into MS Access.
Is there any product that anyone can recommend to do the job?
Is there an ODBC driver that will enable me to link to the files and import data directly
If you have access to both the COBOL source (probably a copybook file) and a Microfocus compiler, you could write an application to convert the data to text files.
Pervasive software's Parser series is probably the cheapest and easiest way to get to this data. In this case both cheap and easy are relative!
Microfocus' XDBC might be another choice, although I haven't had any experience with it myself.
