How to extract data from indexed files (ISAM files) maintained in an unix server.

Hi,

Could someone please assist on a quick way of How to extract data from indexed files (ISAM files) maintained in an UNIX(AIX) server.The file data needs to be extracted in flat text file or CSV or excel format .

Usually we have programs in microfocus COBOL to extract data, but would like to find an alternate option.

Thanks!

There is no quick way to read/extract a ISAM file, you mention it: Usually used for COBOL but also PASCAL and C... Are you talking of full ISAM database files?

I suppose if you have SAS it should be easy...

Yes they are fully ISAM files. There is one option of using Relativity coupled on an ODBC driver. However this is not working for for huge files with lot of data. Also some of the variables which are defined as COMP variables in the field definition are extracted as blank when using Relativility Cleint.
