Hi,

I converted a Natural program to cobol. I am facing a situation here. The dataset length if 400.

In the 359th bit and one other bit, i am getting a F(hexa decimal value for positive) when i generate the dataset by running the natural program while i am getting a C(another hex representation for +ve) using the cobol program.

While converting from Natural to cobol do we face situations like these? Are these a problem. If so how can it be solved?

Thanks,

Sandy

We faced that issue during NATURAL to COBOL conversion.

Since we did it using our automatic tool, we conducted the following strategy regarding the issue:
1. We removed the S from any converted COBOL variable that didn't need it (like dates, timstamps etc.).
2. When reading data that was created by NATURAL, we used a special routine that converts the F to C before processing the data.
