The Question is:
Does there exist a straightforward method or utility for converting/exporting
RMS data to text or other external file format such as XLS?
Is a dictionary or other record definition required or can the RMS structure
itself adequately define data boundaries to make the conversion possible
Even if a dictionary is required - can this be accomplished with some readily
The Answer is :
Conversion tools are entirely file-specific. Barring the use of
Oracle CDD/Repository or such, no dictionary is available -- RMS
record structures are entirely free-form, and applications are
entirely free to map the bytes of individual records to any desired
data format or organization. Conversion tools are file-specific.
