List, I am busy writing my source filter program for converting COBOL programs from the mainframe to ILE/COBOL. Some questions please.... 1) Is it necessary to define a SELECT for the sortwork file for an internal COBOL SORT? 2) If #1 is yes, could someone provide an example of the SELECT and FD for the sortwork file? 3) If anyone out there is familiar with the differences between mainframe and iSeries concerning this, is there anything else I need to be aware of on this topic? -- Regards, Michael Rosinger Systems Programmer / DBA Computer Credit, Inc. 640 West Fourth Street Winston-Salem, NC 27101 336-761-1524 m rosinger at cciws dot com
