I use Xpediter/DevEnterprise from Compuware. It uses you source code as input (COBOL, PL/1, JCL, DB2, CICS, IMS) and generates some neat analysis. For example, structure charts, control flows, syntax analysis (like compile but much much faster). It can also detect loops, dead code, runaway logic, et...

Hi, If I understand correctly, you want to display a sequential number (e.g. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc...) against each field in the record layout, instead of the COBOL level number (e.g. 05. 10. 15, etc...). You can do this by typing the command SHOW NUM (or S NUM for short). Why would you want to do this...

For example, if the 1111111 that you mentioned was a customer-id field in one file and a cust-id field in the other file, you can ...

Hi, Just to be clear, when I say F2, I do not mean the function2 button on the keyboard. The F2 command opens a new editor window in File-AID. Thus enabling you to cut and paste the records you want. These records can be consecutive or you can select each one manually, from anywhere in the file. Not...

Hi, Creating an XREF is really easy. 1. Take option 7 (labeled XREF) from the primary menu of File-AID. 2. Enter the dataset name of your XREF library and a member name for the XREF you want to create. For example, FILEAID.XREF as the dataset and PAYMENTS as the XREF member name, if this is for a pa...

Hi Srini, I just want to add some clarification. The XREF function in File-AID allows the tool to automatically load the correct record layout for the record you are processing. For example, if your file contains record type A, B C and D then the XREF can tell file-AID to select a difference record ...
