Let me make sure I understand.

The original layout was in COBOL and was ported to RPG III many moons ago.

If you are trying to view the original COBOL source then make sure the source type is CBL. If it is the "translated" RPG III version then the source type should be RPG400.

Either way you should be able to just open the copy source in RDi.

Or am I missing something here?

That doesn't make a lot of sense Jack. RPG can't include COBOL or vice
versa. So no - there is no package you can install to cure this.


It's the original COBOL description for a file ported from DOS/VSE to IBM i
OPM RPG back around 1999.

That's the documentation I have for the program-described files I'm looking
at.
No external file description, no DDS, no DDL, nor data dictionary was ever
formulated.
It's folklore in the organization, and a lot of the "folk" have retired :)

If it really is trying to /COPY a COBOL source I'm not surprised that RDi
has a fit - although it should handle it more elegantly!


RDi opened it and threw a sort-of-appropriate error. So as a relatively new
RDi user, thought I'd ask on the list if that missing Java class was round
somewhere.

I don't expect it to /COPY it into RPG. I just thought it might show it
prettier if the missing class were around somewhere. Obviously from the
error it knows what it is looking at.
