You are not paying to get answers,
so any pressure You put on people will probably hurt rather than help to get a better/faster answer,
and... unless my calendar is wrong we are already in weekend time

here is pointer to the cobol bookshelf

Is your FILE-STATUS WS Field defined as PIC S99?. If so, define it as PIC 99 instead and you'll find the "9A" has miraculously transformed itself into a "91".

Then, all will be forgiven.... icon_wink.gif
