Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Introduction

The SimoTime Technologies have the capability of generating a COBOL program that will read a Data File or VSAM Data Set and calculate a record count and accumulate summary totals for the user-defined, numeric fields within a record. This suite of programs will focus on processing numeric fields that are defined as Packed Decimal. Once the record count and summary totals are accumulated they are written to a user-defined output device that may be a file or a SYSOUT device.

The execution of this suite of programs is the 2nd task within a group of three (3) tasks.

Link to Internet   Link to Server   Explore how to Create Test Data Files. For this suite of jobs and programs the file format will be record sequential and the record format will be a fixed-length of 80-byte records containing text strings and packed-decimal numeric fields.

Link to Internet   Link to Server   Explore how to Calculate a Record Count and Accumulate Summary Totals by reading a Record Sequential Data File. Each record contains numeric fields with a packed-decimal (COMP-3) format. The count and totals will be posted to the SYSOUT device.

Link to Internet   Link to Server   Explore how to Validate the Content of Two Data Files by doing a record-by-record compare of two sequential files with 121-byte records. The COBOL source code for the program was generated using SimoTime technologies. This suite of programs was originally inteneded to compare two SYSOUT files since a SYSOUT device is typically configured as a record sequential file with 121-byte records.

This suite of programs is used by SimoTime as a regression test for processing (i.e. accumulating summary totals) numeric information that is stored in a Packed-Decimal (COMP-3) format. The primary objective is to create the summary totals for each of the numeric fields. The secondary objective is to validate the content each of the numeric fields.

Note:  One of the challenges of using the Packed-Decimal format is the possibility of a field containing a non-numeric value. If this happens the program processing the field must be able to recognize the condition and execute alternate processing to avoid a system error and subsequent abnormal termination of the program.

The "Execute" section of this document will describe and demonstrate how to run a job that will read a file and post the summary totals to a SYSOUT file. The "Prepare" section of this document will describe and demonstrate how to generate the programs that will accumulate summary totals and record counts.


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.

This section shows the content of the two SYSOUT files. In the 1st Job the field name "PKTOTS01-VALUE-03" contains a value of 570. In the 2nd job the same field contains a value of 572.

This difference will be programmatically identified by the compare process that is executed as part of the 3rd task within this group of three (3) tasks.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section HTML Document for Test File

The SimoTime Technologies have the ability to scan a COBOL copy file and create an HTML document of a record structure or record layout. The HTML documentation provides information that is not easy to obtain by viewing the COBOL copy file. For example, the physical position of a field within a record as calculated during the copy file scan and placed in the HTML document.

Link to Internet   Link to Server   Explore an HTML document that describes the Record Structure of the Test File used by the job that accumulates Summary Totals and calculates a record count. The numeric fields are packed-decimal (or COMP-3) format. The record structure and generated HTML document for this file are based on a User-Supplied COBOL copyfile.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Summary

The SimoTime Technologies have the capability of generating a COBOL program that will read a Data File or VSAM Data Set and calculate a record count and accumulate summary totals for the user-defined, numeric fields within a record. This suite of programs will focus on processing numeric fields that are defined as Packed Decimal. This document may be used to assist as a tutorial for new programmers or as a quick reference for experienced programmers that are interested in improving their testing process by leveraging additional functionality and data validation techniques.

In the world of programming there are many ways to solve a problem. This document and the links to other documents are intended to provide a greater awareness of the Data Management and Application Processing alternatives.

The documentation and software were developed and tested on systems that are configured for a SIMOTIME environment based on the hardware, operating systems, user requirements and security requirements. Therefore, adjustments may be needed to execute the jobs and programs when transferred to a system of a different architecture or configuration.

SIMOTIME Services has experience in moving or sharing data or application processing across a variety of systems. For additional information about SIMOTIME Services or Technologies please send an e-mail to: helpdesk@simotime.com or call 415 883-6565. We appreciate hearing from you.

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
