Various issues related to Easytrieve Conversion.
1. Easytrieve MASK handled correctly when parentheses used, e.g. MASK (‘9999’)
2. JZPRINT was being invalidly duplicated. Now fixed
3. Comparisons IF xxx NUMERIC now produced message #681, and the Help page explains how to fix this issue
4. [Convert] converts EZT MOVE statements to assignments
5. 10-byte packed numbers no longer produce message #560
6. Fields defined with CODES: if a code value is duplicated, it is only reported with message #56 once
7. Working Storage field definitions can follow an Instream table.
8. EZT SUM statement: SUM property is added to the relevant fields in following LIST statements when they are converted to JZPRINT statement
9. EZT CONTROL statements are changed to JZOrder statements in the EZT Conversion Notepad. These become ORDER options of the PROCESS statement when copied into the Jazz program.
10. Header comments at the start of the EZT program become comments at the start of the Jazz program.
11. IF xxx NUMERIC is now handled properly within MANASYS, Message #681 is no longer produced.
12. Program names of batch programs can be 8 characters long.
13. Multiple Headings. Fields can now have several headings, for example
District DECIMAL(3) HEADING 'District' 'of' 'Prefecture',
14. Recursive EZT macro references are reported and rejected
15. EZT named masks are handled properly (within a single definition)
16. Blanks in EZT masks become B in Jazz DPIC, so that the COBOL is valid
17. An EZT Report definition like
REPORT LBLS LABELS (ACROSS 2 DOWN 15 SIZE 65 NEWPAGE) SPACE 1
is converted to valid Jazz, and defines a labels report which is printed without headings in columns as defined by ACROSS, DOWN, and SIZE.
18. EZT line numbers are preserved, and are used to determine line spacing for Labels reports.
19. Error with subtotals fixed. Subtotals were not being printed unless there was only a single print line.
You’ll get this build automatically when Download Jazz is clicked.
Existing users: if you’re running MANASYS Jazz from a saved shortcut, check that you’re running the current build by looking at Help/About, or the line 4 comment of the generated COBOL. If you have a saved shortcut to the previously-loaded version then this may continue to run the old version.
