Sounds like the niche for an open source tool written in Perl or some such!!

Hello everyone,

It appears that macros created using Client Access get saved with the file
extension of .mac or .vbs. Recording macros using MochaSoft's TN5250
emulator will result in a file with an iterative numerical file extension
(i.e. '.1' for the first macro, '.2' for the second, etc.). It seems that
the macro conversion tool included with Access Client Solutions can
convert macros that were recorded in Client Access but it doesn't appear
to be able to handle the conversion of macros recorded in MochaSoft. When
one digs into the macro files themselves, the degree to which the macros
recorded in the two emulators differ quickly becomes clear. My question is
- does anyone know of a way to convert macros created using MochaSoft so
they can be usable by Access Client Solutions or is it inevitable that all
Mocha macros will need to be manually re-recorded?
