hi,

I have used the pound sign '£' inside cobol program.
But when it is written to output file , it is not getting displayed.
Even i am not able to see when i used in DISPLAY statement.

Please help me to resolve and provide sample code using this as soon as possible.

Thanks
Chinna.

'£' is represented in hex by X'B1'.
So try following code


Code:

MOVE X'B1'                 TO VARIABLE
DISPLAY VARIABLE

I'd guess that the codepage in effect when you try to display it does not have it.....
Does the correct value show when you display with hex on?

Mostly £ is used to dispay for Amount Filed (in Euro).
If u want to display as 123£ in the report,
First defined amt vaiable s9(9)
Then Defined filler after amt field with the value '£' it will be dispalyed after Amt Field.
