The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft COBOL for MS-DOS, versions 2.0, 2.1, and 2.2 - Microsoft COBOL for XENIX, versions 2.1 and 2.2

Summary: Line Sequential, Sequential, Relative, and Indexed Sequential Files (ISAM) written in the MS-DOS versions of Microsoft COBOL Versions 2.0, 2.1, or 2.2 may be accessed by programs compiled in Microsoft COBOL Versions 2.1 and 2.2 for the XENIX operating system. The reverse of this is also true. That is, files written by XENIX COBOL programs can be read by MS-DOS COBOL Version 2.x programs.
