RE: DDF files for RealWorld Accounting

If you cannot track down the DDF files you can take a look at BtSearch32 at www.nssdd.com which will help you analyze the structures and builds the DDF files.

We've already corresponded, Gil.

Btsearch is a great tool, I hope you're getting lots of traction with it.  You're doing a hell of a job promoting it.  However, I'm simply too lazy to go through and try to guess column names, etc.  Pre-built definitions are out there somewhere, I just need to find the right person.

Had I the DDFs (or the COBOL), I'd have some prayer of discerning column names/types accurately.  However, all I have is the definition files for the IQ reports shippped with the product.  A Java parser I wrote for looping through the the IQ files has yielded me a lot.  Nonetheless, Butil, a custom parser, and a lot of late nights have gotten me to the point of extracting a few million row records to work with.

Appreciate the tip!
