Can Visual COBOL works with VB

Hi,

I need some information regarding the visual COBOL. My current project is using VB6 as front end and Microfocus Netexpress COBOL as backend. Now my company is planning to migrate Netexpress COBOL to Visual COBOL. 

In this migration, I will be using the same COBOL modules and generating the dll's and exe from Visual COBOL with .Net. Does these load modules works on VB6 application?

Any inputs on this are very much appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Vinod

RE: Can Visual COBOL works with VB

Hello,

It's still possible to compile COBOL programs as native in Visual COBOL and have them to interact with VB6 application as before with Net Express. They don't have to be compiled as managed.

Thanks,
