Hi,

How do I read COMP variables from a flat file? I know that we can read COMP-3 variables using 'hex on'. Do we have something similar for COMP variables?

Thanks

Your question is not clear.

Do you want to ISPF Edit/Browse/View the COMP data from a flat file ? or
Do you want to read COMP field with in a COBOL program?

'hex on' will show COMP values just as it does COMP-3 values.
Example 2 byte field with a value of 10 in COMP-3:
..
00
1C
and the same in COMP:
..
00
0A
Do you understand?

Remember that the Windows calculator scientific mode can convert bases 2, 8, 10, and 16.
