    Hi Badal-Igate,

     

    You can run batch utility IDUTSTRN (source transport utility)  to create that flat file .

    IDUTSTRN is explained in the CA IDEAL Working Environment Guide

     

    Chapter 7: Transporting Applications in Source Form

     

     

    The Source Transport Utility (IDUTSTRN) lets you import and export

     

    Advantage CA-Ideal source code for the following entities:

     

     

    Programs

    Panels

    Reports

    Sequential file dataviews that are not modeled in Datadictionary

    VSAM file dataviews

    Members

     

     

    The Source Transport Utility is a batch utility that you can use to:

     

     

    Extract source code from one installation and load it to another

    Unload source code to archive for backup and auditing purposes

    Restore source selectively from external source format

    Load source generated externally to Advantage CA-Ideal

     

     

     

    The Source Transport Utility cannot import or export user definitions, system

     

    definitions, and dataviews for Advantage CA-Datacom/DB or DB2, or modeled

     

    sequential file dataviews.

     

    Have a look and let us know if any questions .

    I'm not sure I understand your 2 other questions .

     

    Regards,

    Karina.
