Upgrading from RM/COBOL®

There are a number of settings in Visual COBOL that are designed specifically to ensure that your existing RM/COBOL source code can compile and run in Visual COBOL.

Refer to the Compatibility with RM/COBOL section for guidance and best practice on moving your applications to Visual COBOL. It covers:
  • Supported RM/COBOL features, including detailed information on support for data types and subprograms.
  • Syntactical differences between the two COBOL dialects, including workarounds or equivalent syntax where applicable.
  • Details on how to configure your applications to continue using your RM/COBOL data files.
