[archive] External file handler

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 16 March 2010]

Has anyone out there ever used the I$IO file handler.

I have done a bit reading on the I$IO function within Acucobol GT, and before moving forward to hopefully read a Microfocus ISAM file to bring data directly into a Acucorp vision file I was wondering if anyone has tried to accomplish out in the field with any success.

This would be a process that would need to carried out on a daily basis, so, rather use the Vutil32 or export the file to text and re-import the data to a vision file I thought this could be another alternative.

Thank you for your response ahead of time.

We've used I$IO for years in various capacities with no issues. We've never tried your specific scenario, though.

I$IO won't work with Micro Focus ISAM files. Vision files yes - files created by Server Express or Net Express no.
