if i have a variable like

05 a-var pic s9(3) value -123

then when we display the variable 'a-var' will - be specified in the output.
if not so then how is it stored.

'- 'sign will not be specified in the output. The sign will be stored in the last nibble (4 bits) of the a-var.
so you will get a output which gives a different value in the last digit as sign is stored in last nibble. if u want a proper display use "sign is leading separate' in the declaration.
