in reply to Microfocus Cobol datafiles


We'll need a lot more information than that.

1) Where were the files created?

2) Are you trying to read them on the same system or a different one?

3) Any error messages?

4) Sample code would be nice.

5) What have you tried so far?

PerlMonks is the most helpful place on the 'net. But, you have to do your fair share by asking good questions. Read this: How (Not) To Ask A Question

    CPAN doensn´t show anything about Microfocus or Cobol, od .CAD in DBI.
    This files are already created, and each one is like a table, with fields and records. Their names are like CLIENTS.CAD and CITY.CAD.
    People where I work open, read and write in them, with Cobol. I´m sure Perl would be faster to code on these.
      Can you post sample data files for us to look at? (No actual customer or employee information please.)
