RE: [archive] move data from VMS/VAX to windows

I think you have to be more precise with your question. What kind of data and if it is a one time event or going to happen on a regular basis.
As a starter, I can suggest ftp?

RE: [archive] move data from VMS/VAX to windows

Customers that haved moved from VAX previously and using the VAX file system have done the following:
- Write a COBOL program to read the indexed file and write it out as a sequential file
- Transfer the sequential file to the target platform
- Write a COBOL program to read the sequential file and write it out as a Vision file - or using vutil -load to load from the sequential file to Vision

RE: [archive] move data from VMS/VAX to windows

need to transfer the data files 165 of them
from VMS to windows.

files are in RMS data format with .dat extention
short of issueing 165 commands to dump the files down to binary
transfer them and then reupload to vision is there an easier way.
trying to automate the process some what for them.
something like run binarydump on the vax, transfer the files, then run binaryupload on the windows box.

I checked with a guy that knows VMS and he stated that with data in RMS you have to use the technique suggested by Dilbert to export the data.
