This is a hands-on course to instruct application programmers in the basics of using Easytrieve to increase productivity in the test and production environments. Attendees will be able to create adhoc reports, use sorting procedures, create output files, and match files to speed up all tasks that are currently done using COBOL or other languages. Skeleton JCL and exercises will enable each person to begin using Easytrieve immediately when they return to their application areas.
Participants should have a working knowledge of JCL and some type of programming exposure, but if not, can add TSO editing first hour and how to submit jobs on the mainframe.
3 days/Lecture & Lab
Programmers or Analysts who need to do report formatting and file manipulation in an IBM mainframe environment.
