Configuring COBOL Source Definitions

Configuring COBOL Source Definitions

After you import a COBOL source definition, you may need to configure some of the source properties. The COBOL source definition is similar to a fixed-width flat file definition. However, a COBOL file has some unique properties to consider when you configure the definition:
  • OCCURS
  • Field definition
  • Word or byte storage
  • Field attributes
Review the following tabs and dialog boxes when you configure a COBOL source definition:
  • Table tab.
    Review storage.
  • Advanced properties.
    Review properties for fixed-width data files.
  • Columns tab.
    Review OCCURS, FD section, and field attributes.
