Hello everyone, I wonder if there is a way to know which file a Specific Punta XFD.
thank you very much :)
That depends, the naming of a file can happen in a variety of ways in COBOL, specified in the select phrase or perhaps defined in working storage. Do you know which version created the XFD .. more recent versions of our compiler make XFDs as XML documents and the file type is pretty clear when you open the XFD in an editor <xfd:file-organization>Sequential</xfd:file-organization> as well as the file name ... older compilers will have the file name in the XFD XFD,04,PUNTA, PUNTA .. there is more information on XFDs and file naming here ..
