Reply with quote

Hi,

I have hex data in a PIc X(50) field and its causing some problem with some external printing software of the client.

Is there a way to convert hex data to char using cobol ?

I tried to use
INSPECT STRING1 CONVERTING X'15' TO X'40'.
but it didn't work.

Thanks & Regards,

Ranjit

INSPECT STRING1 REPLACING X'15' BY X'40'. did work.

previously it did not work because of my stupid mistake. I should have used INSPECT twice in the program as data from 2 strings was populated in the final variable depending on condition and I inspected only 1 string.


Thanks & Regards.

Ranjit
