Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Introduction

This suite of sample programs describes how to import data into the Customer Master File. The numeric fields will be converted (from a text format to a Packed-Decimal or Binary format) the text fields will be passed with trailing spaces to match the defined fixed field length. The newly constructed record will be written to a VSAM, KSDS.

The import of data by fields within the record and the reformatting of the output records is actually accomplished with two COBOL programs. The first program does the File I/O of reading a sequential file and writing reformatted records to a Customer Master File. The File I/O program calls the second program to do the record formatting that reformats or converts the numeric fields and append space characters to the text fields. The COBOL programs were generated using SimoTime technology.


We have made a significant effort to ensure the documents and software technologies are correct and accurate. We reserve the right to make changes without notice at any time. The function delivered in this version is based upon the enhancement requests from a specific group of users. The intent is to provide changes as the need arises and in a timeframe that is dependent upon the availability of resources.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Abbreviations

This test case will be importing data from asequential file. The imported data will be converted and written to a VSAM, KSDS. The import/convert process will do a file format and a record content conversion. The following is a list of the abbreviations used when referring to the various file types and record structures.

The following table is a list of terms or abbreviations used within this document.

Abbreviation Description
CSV Comma Separated Values - refers to a record structure that contains a group of concatenated data fields or text strings. The fields are separated or delimited by a comma.
FFL Fixed Field Length - refers to a record structure that contains a group of concatenated data fields. Each field may contain text or binary data. Numeric values may be structured in a varielty of formats that include Binary, Packed-decimal or Zoned decimal. There are no field separator or field delimiter characters between the fields.
KSDS Keyed Sequential Data Set - This is a type of VSAM (Virtual Sequential Access Method) data set. Records are in collating sequence by a key field and alternate indexes are allowed.
Note: If the key field is alpha-numeric the collating sequence will be different between the EBCDIC-encoded and ASCII-encoded environments.
For additional information about VSAM refer to an internet reference at http://www.simotime.com/indexsam.htm or a local reference at indexsam.htm
LSEQ Line Sequential files are ASCII/Text files. Depending on how the file is created it may have fixed or variable length records. The separation of the individual records is maintained by the use of delimiter bytes between the records. For Windows this is usually a two byte value consisting of a Carriage-Return and Line-Feed (or CRLF), the hexadecimal notation is x'0D' and x'0A'. For UNIX systems this is usually a one byte value consisting of a Line-Feed (or LF), the hexadecimal notation is x'0A'.
The record content for Line Sequential files should be display or print text using the ASCII encoding format. Hence the name ASCII/Text files. These files should not contain packed or binary data strings.
RSEQ A Record Sequential file may contain fixed-length records or variable-length records. The record sequential files with fixed-length records are a series of concatenated records or data strings of a predefined length without record separator values between each record. The first byte of the first record starts at the first byte of the file.
A record sequential file with variable-length records is a series of concatenated records or data strings of varying lengths without record separator values between each record. Each record is preceded by a record descriptor word (RDW) that defines the length of the record that follows. A Micro Focus header record is placed at the start of the file when the file is created.
VSAM Virtual Sequential Access Method - A data access method used with IBM Mainframes running MVS, OS/390, z/OS and VSE/ESA operating systems. VSAM has been in use for over 30 years. The original VSAM had a 4-gigabyte limit for the size of data sets. IBM has enhanced VSAM to support record-level sharing and file sizes larger than 4 gigabytes. The current architectural limit varies according to the size of the data control intervals (CI's). For a 512-byte CI size, the maximum size is 2 terabytes; for a KSDS with a CI size of 32 kilobytes, the maximum size is 128 terabytes.
For additional information about VSAM refer to an internet reference at http://www.simotime.com/indexsam.htm or a local reference at indexsam.htm

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Possibilities and Considerations

When running this job on a Mainframe System the output file will be an EBCDIC-encoded, record-sequential file. The records will be concatenated fields of text strings separated (or delimited) by a comma. This file may be downloaded from the mainframe to a Windows system using FTP in ASCII mode. Since the output file is all text it will be properly converted from EBCDIC to ASCII during the file transfer (FTP) process. It will also be converted from a Record-Sequential file to a Line-Sequential file (Micro Focus terminology for ASCII/Text File). The file is now ready to import into an Excel spreadsheet, an Access Data Base or other SQL Data Bases.

When running the job on a Windows System with Micro Focus and using EBCDIC encoding the output file will be an EBCDIC-encoded, record-sequential file. The records will be concatenated fields of text strings separated (or delimited) by a comma. Since we no longer use the FTP process to transfer the file we no longer have the benefit of the FTP process doing the file-format and record-content conversion. Therefore, we need an alternative method for doing the file format conversion from record-sequential to line-sequential and the record content conversion from EBCDIC to ASCII. Refer to the File-Format and Record-Content Conversion Program for more information.

Therefore, we need an alternative method for doing the file format conversion from record-sequential to line-sequential. Refer to the File-Format Conversion Program for more information.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Job Scripts

A job script may be defined as a text file containing job setup information followed by job steps that identify programs to be executed along with parameters unique to the job step. A job script may be created using a text editor. The naming of a job script is determined by the Operating System. A simple job script may contain a single job step that performs a single function. A typical job script will contain multiple job steps executed in a predefined sequence. The status of each job step may be tested at the end of each job step.

This document provides a brief overview of the Micro Focus File Formats available on Linux, UNIX or Windows Systems supported by Micro Focus.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section JCL Members

JCL Members are batch processing scripts that are intended to run on a Mainframe-Oriented System. The term Mainframe-Oriented refers to an actual IBM Mainframe, a Windows System with Micro Focus Mainframe Express or a Micro Focus Enterprise Server with the Mainframe Transaction Option and the Batch Facility.

      * This program was created with the SYSMASK1.TXT file as input. *
      * The SYSMASK1 provides for the sequential reading of the input *
      * file and the sequential writing of the output file.           *
      *                                                               *
      * If the output file is indexed then the input file must be in  *
      * sequence by the field that will be used to provide the key    *
      * for the output file. This is a sequential load process.       *
      *                                                               *
      * If the key field is not in sequence then refer to SYSMASK2    *
      * to provide for a random add or update of the indexed file.    *
      *                                                               *
      * This program mask will have the ASCII/EBCDIC table inserted   *
      * for use by the /TRANSLATE function of SimoZAPS.               *

      * This program was created with the SYSMASK1.TXT file as input. *
      * The SYSMASK1 provides for the sequential reading of the input *
      * file and the sequential writing of the output file.           *
      *                                                               *
      * If the output file is indexed then the input file must be in  *
      * sequence by the field that will be used to provide the key    *
      * for the output file. This is a sequential load process.       *
      *                                                               *
      * If the key field is not in sequence then refer to SYSMASK2    *
      * to provide for a random add or update of the indexed file.    *
      *                                                               *

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Company Overview

SimoTime Technologies was founded in 1987 and is a privately owned company. We specialize in the creation and deployment of business applications using new or existing technologies and services. We have a team of individuals that understand the broad range of technologies being used in today's environments. Our customers include small businesses using Internet technologies to corporations using very large mainframe systems.

Quite often, to reach larger markets or provide a higher level of service to existing customers it requires the newer Internet technologies to work in a complementary manner with existing corporate mainframe systems. We specialize in preparing applications and the associated data that are currently residing on a single platform to be distributed across a variety of platforms.

Preparing the application programs will require the transfer of source members that will be compiled and deployed on the target platform. The data will need to be transferred between the systems and may need to be converted and validated at various stages within the process. SimoTime has the technology, services and experience to assist in the application and data management tasks involved with doing business in a multi-system environment.

Whether you want to use the Internet to expand into new market segments or as a delivery vehicle for existing business functions simply give us a call or check the web site at http://www.simotime.com
