Convert WangVS Cobol to alternate Cobol

By evansrodney ·
Does anyone know a way to automatically or semi-automatically convert WangVS Cobol source code to AcuCobol Cobol, Vax Cobol, or any other major Cobol language? I am looking for no cost or little cost options only at this point.

When we converted to MicroFocus cobol back in 1997, we bought a package from Software Business Applications (SBA) which converted the programs for us, then we went in and tweaked every program. We downloaded the programs thru vspc928. The data wasmore intense because you have to convert it to a flat file (no compressed numeric data), change the signs, and then download thru vspc928 again. After we got it down to a pc environment we had to take the data and rebuild it into indexed files. I don't know if SBA is still around but we converted all the programs and data in a little over 6 months.

I was unable to locate a business by the name of Software Business Applications on the web, so I am unable to follow this lead. However, I do thank Miss Kitty for her reply.

Have you contacted Vancouver Utilities?
http://www.uvsoftware.ca/
They helped us go off of a mainframe to a SCO Unix box when we went to MicroFocus COBOL.
You may also check with MicroFocus to see if they have any tools that you can use:

I also found Thomas Junker's service:

"Move your VS COBOL applications to unix using COBOL ReSource "
