Hi All,
I need to convert a Packed Decimal Variable to Decimal.

Below is the code am trying
ws-packed w 04 P
ws-decimal W 10 N

Move ws-packed to ws-decimal

When I try to write ws-decimal in the file I still get it in Hex format or so and not in a readable format.

use ws-decimal = ws-packed instead of move.
