I am are looking for Cobol programmer to recompile all NetCOBOL batch jobs on:
  • Fujitsu NetCOBOL for .NET Enterprise Edition v6.0 (inc. PowerBSORT & DataTools)

Client has Cobol code that was written a long time ago and running on Windows 2003 server. This code together with other data tools is used to create summary SQL tables on a SQL 2005 server environment.

However, they are in the process of migrating to Windows 2012 environment and SQL 20y14 servers.
