VAX File Conversion and Export

VAX File Conversion and Export

VAX File Conversion and Export

(OP)
    I have no experience with VAXs and I'm trying to convert a DAT file (I think it is an RMS database file but could be wrong) to a flat (ASCII) file.  Does anyone know how to do this or a good VAX forum?  Thanks.

RE: VAX File Conversion and Export

Do you have the record layout of of the ".DAT" file?
Does it have floating point fields?

For a start, do a DIR/FULL on the file to see what the
file organization is (Sequential, Relative, Indexed...).
