01 CTLRMTFL-SERIALNO.
49 CTLRMTFL-SERIALNO-LEN
PIC S9(4) USAGE COMP.
49 CTLRMTFL-SERIALNO-TEXT
PIC X(15).

01 CTLRMTFL-PAGESERIAL PIC S9(12)V USAGE COMP-3.

Now we
MOVE CTLRMTFL-SERIALNO-TEXT(4:CTLRMTFL-SERIALNO-LEN - 3)
TO CTLRMTFL-PAGESERIAL.

Will we meet problem on this?

Hi FWY

If the data contained in the variable CTLRMTFL-SERIALNO-TEXT is always of length = 15,it wont create any problem.

Thanks

You declared this variable as numeric
Quote:
MOVE CTLRMTFL-SERIALNO-TEXT(4:CTLRMTFL-SERIALNO-LEN - 3)
TO CTLRMTFL-PAGESERIAL.

and moving a alphanumeric variable

The compilation of the program will be sucessfull but i dont think you will get the result that you expected at the runtime

Hi

It will surely give the desired result presuming CTLRMTFL-SERIALNO-TEXT is having numeric data from posn 4 to 15.

Thanks
