S9(3) COMP-3 is the equivalent to a 2-byte PD field for DFSORT. How you would convert it to "numeric" depends on what you mean by numeric.

For more details, see the following DFSORT information:

http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/bookmgr_OS390/BOOKS/ICE1CG20/2.4.7?DT=20060615173822

http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/bookmgr_OS390/BOOKS/ICE1CG20/2.4.8?DT=20060615173822

If you're not familiar with DFSORT and DFSORT's ICETOOL, I'd suggest reading through "z/OS DFSORT: Getting Started". It's an excellent tutorial, with lots of examples, that will show you how to use DFSORT, DFSORT's ICETOOL and DFSORT Symbols. You can access it online, along with all of the other DFSORT books, from:
