Hello Gautam and welcome to the forums,

When you have a question, you should start a new topic for your question (rather than posting a reply to some inactive topic).

You have posted in the cobol part of the forum, but you say you want this in jcl. Which is it?

In cobol you would simply move the packed-decimal data to a zoned-decimal or numeric-edited field.
