HI,
Im reading a value from the table, in which a column is declared as VARCHAR,i read the column and put it in a host var,
so im trying to move the data part of the host var to the File variable. After the execution of the program when i open the file with the copybook layout i could find the value in Hex format. Could any one tell me how to get value in Alphanumeric format?

Host variable:
03 Name
49 Name-data pic X(32)
49 Name-len pic s9(4) comp.

file Copy book
03 ww-file-name pic x(32)

Move Name-data to ww-file-name.

When i open the file the value in Hex.. i need in Alpha format
could some one help on this.

You need to post some content from the output file. Your meaning of "hex format" versus "alphanumeric format" is not understood. When you show the data, use copy/paste and the "Code" tag. Do not try to post a screen shot. They are just clutter and are deleted.
