Just a little bit of philosophy

as far as data is stored on any media, it is just a sequence of bits organized in larger entities according to the hardware architecture;
the definition of its nature is a convention according to the use You make of the data itself.

let' s make an example for 8 bits:

bit sequence 1100 0001
hexadecimal representation "c1"
numeric value 193
alphanumeric value "A"

so the fact that a sequence of bits is representing a packed decimal number can not be made into a bidirectional assumption

for example ( in hexadecimal representation )

x"000C" can be interpreted as the D.P value of zero,
or simply as a binary value of 12

All this to imply that Your request is not clear enough

regards

Hello,

What do you mean by "remove"? If this packed data is $, or quantities, or some kind of id#'s, i suspect they should not be removed - the records would lose much of their usability without them.

Please post a few imput records as the output you want from them.

Also, post the lrecl and whether the records are fixed or variable length.
