IBM 4690 POS File to Text File

IBM 4690 POS File to Text File


I do not this is the right forum to put in.

I want to convert a IBM4690 file to some kind of text file which can be readable?

Can someone points to right forum or place?


RE: IBM 4690 POS File to Text File

Don't know which forum you need either but what type of IBM4690 file are you looking to convert?  Is it a standard 4690 file, if so which one?

RE: IBM 4690 POS File to Text File


The file name is EALDEPTC, I want it to convert to a text format so that it can be readable?


RE: IBM 4690 POS File to Text File

You might want to look into the Programming guide of General Sales Application, from there you can find information on the file/s you want to extract or reformat. (",)

You can use a package called TV++ posted on Its very cheap and pretty usefull. You can set up templates to read all types of files. It already comes with a Tlog reader. I am however at teh moment trying to get a set of templates so I do not have to work them out as I am not a programmer. Anyone with this experience should not have a problem. Its cheap simple and quick I would recommend it. They also do a free trial. Hope this helps
