if the data is in a dataset, then put 'hex on' in the command line to convert from alphanumeric to hexadecimal and 'hex off' to change it to alphanumeric.

Code:
05  numbytes pic 99 comp
05  dispbytes redefines
    numbytes.
    10  twobyte pic x.
    10  onebyte pic x.
move low-values to twobyte.
move 'A' to onebyte.
multiply numbytes by 16.
inspect onebyte converting
    from X'00102030405060708090A0B0C0D0E0F0'
      TO X'F0F1F2F3F4F5F6F7F8F9C1C2C3C4C5C6'.
inspect twobyte converting
    from X'000102030405060708090A0B0C0D0E0F'
      TO X'F0F1F2F3F4F5F6F7F8F9C1C2C3C4C5C6'.
display dispbytes.>>>>>>>>>"C1"
