Keeping tabs in line sequential files

Jump to solution

Hi there,

My Environment: Visual COBOL 3.0, Visual Studio Community 2015

How can I keep tabs when reading line sequential files i.e. not expand to spaces?  Ideally I want to set it so that my project always just writes and reads line sequential files without interfering with the content i.e. no null insertion and no tab expansion.

Thanks,

Linden

Hi Linden,

You will need to set EXPANDTAB=OFF and INSERTNULL=OFF in a File Handler Configuration File.

Here is the link to the topic that covers the File Handler Configuration File: http://documentation.microfocus.com/help/topic/com.microfocus.eclipse.infocenter.visualcobol.vs2015/GUID-E050FCC9-8D01-4D3E-9481-5EC959D6D136.html?cp=8_7_3_6_1_0
