When upgrading to CA Datacom support for MetaCOBOL 15.1 from CA MetaCOBOL+ 1.1. do I need to be concerned with MCGEN to customize translation options for the MCOBOL program?
With 1.1, the DATE format was DMY or MDY and was part of the MCGEN customization of the MCOBOL program.
WIth 15.1, the DATE format is hard coded as YMD (not DMY or MDY) and cannot be changed.
So, the customer should scan their user macros for reference to "DATE" and determine if they need to adjust their macros to handle the different format of YMD (YYYYMMDD). If they have a question, they should send in their macro.
