Micro Focus Variable Length Files
Convert, Process and Protect COBOL Data
Short and long variable length records in Micro Focus COBOL are in file formats that many applications cannot import or process.
You may also need to process this data directly and retain its format, or convert it to another file format, or to a structured (sequential) file format, like CSV, XML, or LDIF.
MFVL File Conversion Only
IRI NextForm converts short and long-form MicroFocus Variable Length (MFVL) files into popular file formats (like CSV, XML, text, etc.), or from the additional formats above into MFVL. NextForm also supports MF and other COBOL data types, plus the remapping of record layouts (e.g., fixed to delimited).
MFVL File Processing & Conversion
MFVL File Protection (Field & Record Level)
CoSort (SortCL) and IRI FieldShield can safeguard data in MFVL files with field-level encryption, masking, de-identification, and other routines, based on the nature of the data and the recipient of the file. Both produce audit-ready XML logs from their operations to verify compliance with data privacy laws.
