Hello

I need the documentation on the cwbx.dll. I have searched the IBM site to no avail. Can anyone help??

I am creating a DLL (in VB6) to call a programme on the AS/400. I can see all of the properties and methods that cwbx has, but I have no idea how to use them!! I need to convert numeric values to/from packed decimal etc.

Regards
James

Thanks for that but it doesn't describe the methods etc. which is what I need (e.g. how do you use the parameters for the Packed Decimal conversion).

I can't understand how IBM could create what looks like such a useful tool and then not bother with any documentation?

Hi

I've temporarily [I will remove it in 2 weeks - if you need a copy after this date please contact me directly] placed a copy of CWBX.HLP at the following location: Feel free to save it. It contains all that you are looking for - or rather it gave me what I needed!
It should be available as a custom installation option with Client Access Express.

Right click and save target on central graphic.

Hope this helps

No comment has been added lately, so it's time to clean up this TA.

Read my article here:

It will show you how to do the numeric conversions.  Also, the doc for cwbx.dll is on your machine if you installed iSeries Client Access.  Read this link to find it:
