I have to move a decimal ( comp -3 ) to a character(A) field and write it into a output file...But the value is not retained properly...For example if i move 22.90 to the character or alphanumeric variable , the direct move doesnt work properly...can somebody suggest a soln such that im able to get 22.90 in the character output file properly

What is the pic of the input and output fields?

05 a-field pic s9(5)v99 value 22.90.
05 out-field pic x(10) value space.
move a-field to out-field.
doesn't work?
try:
05 temp-field pic -9(5).99.
move a-field to temp-field.
move temp-field to out-field.
is better?

Hello,

It would be helpful if you post what you ARE getting rather than just saying that the move doesn't work properly. It would also help if you post what kind of output you'd like beyond just saying 22.90.

Do you want leading zeros? If the value was 2222.90 would you want a comma (2,222.90) inserted?. How do you want negatives to appear?

The more info you provide, the more we can help.

hi, sorry for not providing enuf input.

What I am facing rite now.
If I have 22.90 ( S9(3)V9(2) ) in the input file, I am moving it to a character fields ( A size 8) the value 22.90 comes as some 480 and sumthing.

What I need:
I wud need to supress the leading zeros.No trailing supression is required.
I need the same input value in the output character field.

so I just want 22.90
Even if it is 2222.90 I want it as 2222.90
No more formatting is required.
In case theres is -22.90 I would need the negative sign also
So I need -22.90 in the output

Hope I havent missed out anything this time.

First, what exactally if the description of the field in the input file, what is its PICture and usage (comp/comp-3)?

Hi Rarvins,

To get what you want, please try:

Code:

    05 a-field            pic s9(5)v99 value 22.90.
    05 b-field            pic x(8).
    05 b-field-edited redefines b-field pic '-----.99'.

Code:
move a-field to b-field-edited

I ran a small test with 22.90 and -22.90 which gave:
Code:

   22.90     
  -22.90     


Please let us know if you need any additional info.

Dick, I'm more interested in that "22.90 comes as some 480 and sumthing".....Now that's got my curiosity up.... icon_biggrin.gif

Hi Bill,

Me too, but unless/until we can see the actual result, we'll just have to wonder. . . . icon_confused.gif

I should have also mentioned that the move statement should be
Code:
move a-field to b-field-edited

Ooops icon_redface.gif

Hi Ravin
Please let us know whethet the following code solve your query.

01 IN-PUT PIC 9(5)v9(2) COMP-3.
01 OUT-PUT PIC X(8).


01 IP-TEMP PIC 9(5)V9(2).
01 IP-FMAT PIC ZZZZZ.99.



MOVE IN-PUT TO IP-TEMP.
MOVE IP-TEMP TO IP-FMAT.
MOVE IP-FMAT TO X(8).

DISPLAY IN-PUT
DISPLAY IP-FMAT

Hi Rajesh,

Please modify your solution to include a floating minus sign. What you posted will "work" but the -22.90 will be missing the '-'. Also, if you use redefinition, you will not need to move the data more than once.

If you look at a prior post in this thread, you will see code that does what Rarvins requested. Once you compare the 2 suggestions, try yours and see if you get the correct result for both positive and negative numbers.

Hi Scherrer
Thanks for your suggestion. Is the following sound ok?


01 IN-PUT PIC 9(5)v9(2) COMP-3.
01 OUT-PUT PIC X(8).

01 IN-PUT-RES.
05 IP-TEMP PIC 9(5)V9(2).
05 IP-FMAT REDEFINE IP-TEMP PIC -ZZZZZ.99.


MOVE IN-PUT TO IP-PUT-RES.
MOVE IP-FMAT TO OUT-PUT.

DISPLAY IN-PUT.
DISPLAY OUT-PUT.

Rajesh,

Why don't you just move in-put to ip-fmat with out the redefined?

Hi Bill

I am not damn sure whether we can directly move comp-3 variable to editing fields like Zero suppressed(IP-FMAT) since, the sending field(IN-PUT) value is stored as packed decimal format. Also I got some errors in my previous exp when I did the same. Hence, I firstly moved it to decimal variable(IP-TEMP) which is moved later to output field.

MOVE IN-PUT TO IP-TEMP.
MOVE IP-FMAT TO OUT-PUT.

Trust me on this, move the comp-3 field directly to the edit field, no redef, just directly, it is now edited, move the edit field anywhere you want (except to a numeric field). I am 'dang sure' that is all you need.

Hello,

Please review my earlier post and do the redefine that way. You will get the editing needed and will have an x(8) field that is easier to move around or string.
Code:

    05 a-field            pic s9(5)v99 value 22.90.
    05 b-field            pic x(8).
    05 b-field-edited redefines b-field pic '-----.99'.


The preferred way to get a comp-3 field into edited format is moving it directly. Moving it to some other pic just adds overhead and room for error. The underlying assembler issues an "edit" instruction that must have a comp-3 (packed decimal) field as input. If you don't have the data in a comp-3 field, it will happen internally. If you'd like to see this, put several different formats in some test code and then look at the generated assembler.

Not to worry, this is not a bother but you have a seprate thread on the same topic..why?

After going through that thread, would suggest you to post a bit of your code, with WS varaibles and yes please post the scrap from the data which you are referring to as comp-3. Use BBcode when you post your code/data.
