Hi,

I'm trying to make GENERATE XML work.
I am not a COBOL programmer. I have studied it for about 3 months but 10 years ago.
Please could someone tell me how to get the XML generated visible on a PC.

Shouldn't there be a line like <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Thanks.

DATA DIVISION.
WORKING-STORAGE SECTION.
01 EmployeeRec.
03 Name pic X(25).
03 MailAddress.
05 Street pic X(20).
05 City pic X(12).
05 State pic X(2).
03 Personal.
05 MaritalStatus pic X.
05 BirthDate pic X(8).

01 XMLMsg pic x(1000).
01 IFSFile pic x(50) value "/home/FOXWELL/test.xml".

PROCEDURE DIVISION.
POPULATE-EmployeeRec.
MOVE 'John Doe' TO Name.
MOVE '5th Avenue' TO Street.
MOVE 'Manhattan' TO City.
MOVE 'NY' TO State.
MOVE 'Y' TO MaritalStatus.
MOVE '19651231' TO BirthDate.
XML GENERATE FILE-STREAM IFSFile
FROM EmployeeRec
END-XML.
STOP RUN.
