Possible Bug in Mainframe Copybook Filter

Post by novakevin »

I am using the mainframe copybook filter to convert mainframe data files to tab-delimted files, and I am using the option to remove "FILLER" fields from the ouput. This seems to work great for the base or fixed portion of the record, but the FILLER fields aren't being removed from the "OCCURS ... DEPENDING ON ... " sections. I am using TextPipe Pro 8.9.9. Thanks!

Thanks - we'll fix that up for the v9.1 release (v9.0 is out now)

Thanks! I'll eagerly await 9.1 so I don't have to change all my downstream processing code.

Simon,

Any chance of a 9.0.1 release to fix this in the near future? Otherwise I'll probably have to work around for now. Obviously I wish I had found this before 9.0 was released...

Thanks!

Hi Kevin,

We're hoping to try and get a release out this morning pending a bug fix on another front. If not today (due to a long weekend), it will be next Tuesday.

SImon,

The latest version (9.1) fixed the problem and FILLER fields are now being removed from the OCCURS sections as well. TextPipe Pro 9.1 is wonderful; it _almost_ makes working with COBOL data files enjoyable! ;-)

Thanks!!
