We are using RM/Cobol and they also provide an ODBC interface but it
requires the use of SQL. We are trying to avoid have to convert 6,000
- 7,000 programs to an embedded SQL model. Not only do our COBOL
programmer lack the necessary expertise but the programs were not
structured with transaction management in mind. There is some
terrible spaghetti code that would be extremely difficult to sort out.
