Custom EBCDIC Conversion Packages

Do It (Mostly) Yourself with a Turnkey VEDIT Solution

Some users who can perform the EBCDIC conversion themselves want assistance getting started or have some unique requirements. We can help by customizing one of our VEDIT-based EBCDIC Conversion packages for you.

A custom turnkey solution can make your job much easier if:

  • You’re not familiar with EBCDIC files and COBOL "copy-books"
  • You want to save time by having us set up the conversion for you.
  • Your EBCDIC files require the Level-3 or Level-4 conversion package

We create all the files you need to run the conversion yourself. We also convert your sample in our secure facility and provide you with the tools you need to convert the rest of your files, including a custom batch file to automate the conversion.

VEDIT - EBCDIC Conversion Secure Facility
Confidential & Secure

You can send us your samples via encrypted email, secure FTP or even snail mail. We're happy to sign our Confidentiality and Indemnity Agreement.

Fast & Guaranteed

Turn-around is very fast, typically one business day for a typical job. If we can’t make the conversion work we’ll refund your money.

Other Formats

We can also create a custom solution for you to convert non-COBOL, binary files and other files to and from other formats.

How the Custom EBCDIC Conversion Service Works

It's easy. Send us your sample EBCDIC data and layout info. We'll return a quote to make a custom turnkey solution for you, including support. After we recieve your order, we'll send you the turnkey solution ready to run.

1. Send Us Your Samples

Send us the file specification, preferably as a COBOL copybook. We prefer it attached to an email, but if you only have it in printed form, you can fax it to us. If you're able to, please also send a sample EBCDIC data file.

We'll examine the files, discuss the job with you if needed, and send a quote (often within a few hours)

2. Get Your Custom Converter

After you purchase the appropriate VEDIT conversion kit and we receive your order, we customize the software and files, convert your samples and send you everything (often within a day).

We accept Purchase Orders with Net-30 terms from companies with 100 or more employees and any government organization. For smaller companies, we request payment by credit card.

3. Convert Your Files

With your custom turnkey solution, you can easily convert your EBCDIC data either in the VEDIT interface or in batch mode using the Windows Command Line. We'll show you how to do it both ways.

We also provide support for a year while you convert your files. Guaranteed!

Convert Complex EBCDIC Datasets

VEDIT EBCDIC conversion packages can translate almost any EBCDIC data file, including very complex datasets with multiple record types, variable length records, and thousands of fields per record.

Choose from four packages to meet your needs and optimize your budget. If you’re not sure which level is best for you, contact us today and we’ll help you figure it out. You can buy level two or three now and if you need a higher level, upgrade within a year for the difference in price.
