Hi,

My question is related to fileaid. When i am browsing the vsam file for some of the fields i am seeing the values are displaying weird. Can anyone please let me know why its displaying like that and also let me know what should i do to see the actual value.

ENT-DT S9(9) X'0000000000'
CODE-3 XXX X'999C40'

Thank you,
Ajay C Indukuru.

For an s9(9) field that isn't a valid hex display since it would have to be 18 characters for a 9 byte field, if it is s9(9) comp-3 then FA is showing it in hex because it is not a valid value (even for a s9(9) field all x'00' would not be a valid value).

For the xxx field FA is showing it to you in hex since those are not all displayable characters.

Either your layout is wrong or the file contains garbage!

Is there a way that i can see the actual values if the Hex format is not wrong.

Hello,

Do not use the copybook. Then you will just get whole records.
