Hi..,

This example may helps you to understand clearly

WORKING-STORAGE SECTION.

05 CURR-BILL-DTE PIC S9(6) COMP-3.

PROCEDURE DIVISION.

MOVE 051505 TO CURR-BILL-DTE.


In the Data set it looks as follows

when HEX is OFF

---
***
&*



When HEX is ON

----
&*
0555
010C

you should read in zig zag manner
like top bottom top bottem....... as 051505C


Thanks

Hi !

@vijay_bn79

You can define the hex-value directly in a Cobol-programm as a constant.
FIELD PIC X(04) VALUE X'A49485A8'.

@sandy_mcs
In which environment would you do that. In TSO editor or in a Cobol-programm. Here in the COBOL-Section you posted your question.

Regards, UmeySan
