Hi,

In my job I am multiplying 2 zoned decimal numbers and want to store the result as a Zoned number. The JCL and every thing is working fine but the output is incorrect. If i reading the output as Packed data then the output is correct.
Ex: Num1= 1231.23 and Num2=236.00, then multiplication o/p should be 290570.28. But in my o/p dataset it is showing as
2905702รต
FFFFFFFFC
2905702F
Can you please tell me what is the reason for this and what I need to do?


Thanks for your help in advance,
Suneetha

Post the code for the variable definitions and the PROCEDURE DIVISION calculation. If it is working for packed decimal, that implies your variable definitions are not right -- zoned decimal and packed decimal are defined differently in COBOL.
