You can run a RPG program on machines which do not have a compiler.  In
fact we have RPG programs on all of our 400s but only have the compiler on
two.  I would assume that COBOL would be the same way.

Dear all,

Just a quick question. If I have an AS/400 with a COBOL/400 program that is
compiled (executable code and no RPG on the machine) and provided that
is nothing specific to that environment or AS/400 that the program would
uses, is it possible to send the executable code to and AS/400 that has no
COBOL/400 on it (only has RPG) and still get the program to run? I think it
should work but I am not 100% sure. Any insight would be appreciated.

Thanking you in advance,

Shane Lakes
