Hi,
I searched for Focus Data type conversion in the forum but couldnot find anything useful.

I have a fields with Cobol declaration as S9(9) COMP-3 and repective FOCUS declaration as P11.0 .

While running to Focus job is there any way to convert this COMP-3 fields to display format.

Please let me know if the requirement is not clear.

Hello,

You should be able to move it to a Zoned Decimal field.

Rajen,

If you are trying to print in a Lotus file then there is no need to convert it. You may use:

Code:
ON TABLE SAVE AS <SAVE FILE NAME> FORMAT LOTUS


And if it is a PS then you can convert into alphanumeric and print

Code:
NEW_VAR /A6 = PCKOUT(OLD_VAR,6,NEW_VAR);
