Steps to Import a COBOL Source Structure

Steps to Import a COBOL Source Structure

To import a COBOL source structure, complete the following steps:
  1. Open the Source Analyzer, and click Sources > Import from COBOL file.
  2. Select the COBOL file you want to analyze.
  3. Select the code page of the COBOL file.
    This is the code page of the COBOL file (.cbl), not the data file. The code page must be compatible with the PowerCenter Client code page.
    When you select this code page, the data file uses this code page by default. After you import the COBOL file, you can configure the code page of the source data when you adjust the source definition or when you run the workflow.
    The Designer lists the five code pages you have most recently selected. Then it lists all remaining code pages in alphabetical order.
  4. Click OK.
The COBOL source definition appears in the Designer. More than one definition may appear if the COBOL file has more than one FD entry.
