I have the variables declared like this.

05 WS-E PIC X(05) VALUE 'ABCDE'.
05 WS-F PIC 9(05) VALUE ZEROES.

Now i am moving WS-E TO WS-F.

But i think if we try to move alphabetic to numeric type we should get SOC7.But i tried thsi and i m getting some junk data.Can any one expalin this.

This the displayed output.

WS-E: ABCDE
WS-F: ABCD5

SOC7 will occur only when you do arithmetic operations on a variable with non-numeric data and not when u move alphabets to numeric field.
