 >> I have enjoyed the Latest and Greatest in ILE COBOL that Jon Paris has
done in the past, and believe that this could be expanded on.

Glad you enjoyed them Jim.  I was forced to drop my COBOL sessions because
I had just too many sessions to do at COMMON.  They were not replaced
because the attendance numbers were too low.

Part of the problem you face is that most* COBOL shops also have RPG based
packages and so have an active interest in both languages.  Unless you are
very lucky, there will be at least one or two good RPG sessions scheduled
up against the COBOL one with the resulting reduction in attendance.


* I can't remember the exact numbers but in excess of 90% of all shops that
have the COBOL compiler also have RPG!
