I knew mainframe COBOL, but that was 10 years ago.

Not just COBOL, but CICS and JCL as well.

Now get off my lawn.

Learned it in college and forgot it soon after thankfully. I still have the book around here somewhere though.

there are features I want, not sure if it can be done.......... need to learn if COBOL supports something like that.

Example: searching product for sale, I can see what we have available but can't find additional info like cost, sell, list pricing, "line 2 comments"........ all that has to be done via 12 other steps first. It's a real hassle.

I need to communicate with our IT guy in a nerdy language to have him understand what I want.

Far as I know that shouldn't be hard. Our old software is written in Fujitsu COBOL for .NET and it can pull that kind of stuff up.

In general, of course you can do that. In your specific situation? Insufficient data...

Mock-up exactly what you want to see and take it to your IT guy.

I can think that possibly the only issue you would have is whether or not the code has a command that will only list product with inventory on hand. I'm almost sure that it can, because I think we have a single customer who does so much POS business that they required that we write this in, but honestly I'm not at work so I can't look it up.

Otherwise, as long as those pieces of data are stored in the same file, shouldn't be too slow either. It only slows down when you start having to query separate files.
