Dear Experts,

Does anyone know of any PC-based editors for AS/400 Cobol?  We currently use PDM, via Client Access.  It would be nice to have a more modern editor.  It would probably be OK if we needed to handle updoad and download of code ourselves.

Any ideas?

    There is a version of SEU that comes with client access and runs on the PC

    . This should have the colbol stuff in it.

    It will be on the client access CD.


    (I of the old school so do not use it so I do not know ehat it is called)

    CODE/400 is it.
    There is an AS400 specific websphere express CD bundled with every server.
    On this CD, you will find WSAD, which is the PC based development environment for the iSeries.

    Dear Dave and shalomc:

    Thanks!  I have installed CODE/400 on my PC.  Having a little trouble getting it running, but that's normal...

    Do you know if there's something even more modern for Cobol editing with WebSphere?  CODE/400 is about six years old now, I think...
