Font size adjustment in Word

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 19 April 2011]

We have been attempting to incorporate building Word documents into our process. We looked at the old forums and found sample programs that will accomplish this. The one issue that we would like to know if anyone has fixed is the Font Size issue.

From reading the comments in the WordMailMerge.cbl program it says:

*Note that the font size is of type single, which is a datatype
*not currently supported by ACUCOBOL-GT, hence we can set it,
*but not reset it. Therefore, if you plan on returning to the
* original settings, you may not want to alter the size.

We use Acu 6.2 and would like to be able to adjust the size of the fonts in our Word docs. Has this issue been fixed or have any of you accomplished adjusting the font size in a program?

Thanks for any help.

RE: Font size adjustment in Word

No, this is still a valid restriction. Development has not created a data type which will allow you to adjust the font in Word from COBOL.
