Vision File Access in Visual Cobol

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 25 March 2011]

We are very new at the .net world but have purchased Visual Cobol because it can access our current vision file data without converting the data (so we understand).

Our first issue is that we can't seem to find a way to get a project to see our current vision data files. Can someone please send me some pointers/clues/hints on how you get a new project to see a vision data file.

Thanks for ANY help.

    I guess it sort of depends on what you mean by "see".

    If you right click the project name in the solution explorer, the context menu should have an option (about 1/3 of the way down) labeled "Add". Select that then select "Existing Item". You should then see a file picker dialog. On the bottom right corner of that dialog there's a combo box which allows you to specify the mask for files to display. Drop down the combo box so it displays "All Files" and navigate to the folder where your vision data files are and you should be able to select them.

    On the other hand if you mean something different by "see" then you need to expand your question a bit.
