It's All About Community

Micro Focus has recently launched a new community site for those who use the many different tools the company produces.  For those that haven't visited as of yet, click on and take a look.  You'll find forums, blogs and articles dedicated to each product area, not just COBOL.

For instance, there are sections on DevPartner, Silk, and i.Sight (Modernization Workbench) and so on and so forth.  Of course the COBOL sections are the best, but then again maybe I'm biased in some way :).

While still in its infancy, I believe it has potential to turn into something rather useful.  I would like to encourage you to post on the site and share your ideas/questions, etc.  I'm a firm believer that you'll only get something out of it if you put something in to it.  Yeah, I said that. *smile*

I've already found a pretty interesting post on the site showing how to do a mail merge using Visual COBOL and Microsoft Word.  Pretty slick stuff and something I've often wanted to do myself.  I wonder what else someone will post?  I'll just have to keep checking back huh? *wink*

Oh well, lunch break is over.  Gotta get back to it.

See ya!

  1. Mail merge is a continuing requirement since TRS-80 days. I remember when a certain Robert Collins showed me how to do my first email merge!
