"explode"? Use the DYNAMITE keyword. icon_lol.gif

But seriously, are you asking how to convert a COMP field to readable characters or what? COMP is equivalent to DFSORT's BI or FI format. See the following for more information:

You can use p,m,f,edit or p,m,f,to to convert a BI or FI field. Exactly what you'd use depends on what you want the output to look like. See the following for some more information:
