In what conditions can I declare a COMP-3 field instead of a numeric PIC variable? and viceversa.

hi annai, comp mainly used for incresing the efficiency and correctness of computation, coz comp variable has own storage where the comptation takes part, similerly comp-3 is used for decimal calculations, its storage (n/2)+0.5, where n is no of pic (99..)
