    Accessing indexed cobol .dat files


    Is there an efficient way for vb to access and update cobol generated .dat
    files?

    There are more ways than ever to manage files today. You can use simple Open
    /Get/Input operations, the FileSystem object or if you can find an ODBC or
    OLE DB driver/provider, use ADO to manage the files. The fact that these
    files were generated in COBOL should make no difference what-so-ever--even
    if they were encoded in EBDIC.

    I am tackling the same issue, and attempting to open up the file
    using ADO (no connection), and using ? Provider

    Does anyone have and example..?

    Thanks
