I have a field in a cobol program WS-FIELD defined as PIC X(02). The content is in hexadecimal say X'1E23'
How can I convert this value to displayable numeric field?

Thanks,Shamik.

Use REDEFINE to overly PIC S9(04) COMP and display the COMP field. Or, move the COMP file to a PIC S9(04) SIGN LEADING SEPARATE field and use it.
