They are uncertain about their final destination -- computer programming language heaven or hell -- so they persist in a partially decomposed state. They are zombie languages.

  • 3. a cheep interface to database
    Hi all, I am an Acucobol user, and I have to write a program that stores the data into a database. I don't know SQL, and I would prefer not to learn ESQL. I had been told that I have a couple of choice: -using Acu4GL, that lets me to write normal Cobol statements (OPEN, WRITE, START, READ, etc) to interface to a database like Oracle, Informix, MSSQL, DB2, ODBC, etc -using DBMaker/DCI that basically allow me to work like with Acu4GL, but it is only for DBMaker. I don't have to interface with a particular database, so the cheaper solution will be the best. As far as I know the DBMaker/DCI solution is the cheaper (and someone tells me that's also the faster). I would like to know if some of you have adopted with success this solution. thanks in advance, yo
  • 4. win98 to XP
    I have a Win98 aplication, written in Fujitsu Version 5.0, that was recently moved onto a win XP system. It has slowed down to about 1 /1000 the the speed. (from 30 seconds to an hour or two). I actually thought it had hung, but not so ... if I go for a short holiday and come back, it does eventually finish. Anybody ever seen anything like this? Donald
  • 5. Apologies to HP & Jeff Lanam (was: Method to force keeping of source
    I was out-of-town since last week. I usually try and acknowledge my errors as soon as they get pointed out to me. Please excuse the mis-information that I put out last week about HP's membership in J4. I do, however, still think that I am correct in saying that ONLY Micro Focus has made any "public" statement committing to (ever) providing a fully conforming 2002 compiler. (Fujitsu-Siemens - not "PC" Fujitsu - may have done so also, but I am not sure one way or another about that) -- Bill Klein wmklein <at> "Jeff Lanam" < XXXX@XXXXX.COM > wrote in message news: XXXX@XXXXX.COM ... > On Thu, 01 Jul 2004 03:35:11 GMT, "William M.

NetCOBOL and reports

Postby R. Hendriks » Tue, 06 Jan 2004 23:52:58 GMT


I'm searching for the best way to create reports that can be altered during
runtime by the end-user. The process of changing column-order, sort-order,
which data is contained in which column, which datafields are visible etc.
should be done by the user via a GUI form designer which stores the report
settings, or via an own written program which via for instance COM/OCX
directly influences the report, based on some stored settings.

I've taken a look at crystal decision and *believe* that the situations I
mention above (the report alteration) can be done via COM. Yet I haven't got
the hands-on experience and I'd like to hear the experience of those who
have worked with this product.

Are there any similar products to crystal reports? Are they
superios/inferior to it, and if so, on which features?

I'm using NetCOBOL/PowerCOBOL version 7. I'm aware of the existence of
PowerFORM, but this product doesn't offer runtime adjustment of reports
created with it.

Thanks in advance and kind regards,

Rik Hendriks
Don't think you are, know you are.

Is there a way to set the button types on a MessageBox using Fujitsu
NetCOBOL for .NET v2.1?  I can invoke a messagebox and set the text and
caption, but can't seem to figure out how to set the button types.  I
want to be able to be able to display the Yes and No buttons rather
than the default of OK.

Getting this error:

It's a cobol main program, which inputs from a Line Sequential data file and
then calls a C++ function.  I'll post the code if necessary.
