I have been programming in COBOL in a VAX / VMS environment for a few years and have discovered that the IBM AS/400 environment is significantly different from what I had been used to. Can anyone tell me what the ILE COBOL400 statements are to: 1. Select a master file (with patient-number as the key) to be read sequentially. 2. Select a supplemental patient data file (also with patient-number as the key) in which I want to look up the corresponding patient number from the master file. 3. Read the supplemental data file by key field (patient number). In other words, I need to read each record of the master file sequentially, look up the corresponding supplemental patient data in the supplemental file (by patient number) if a supplemental record for the patient exists, edit data in the fields of the supplemental file's record (if it exists), then re-write the supplemental file's record. Any assistance would be GREATLY appreciated.
