i want to move some COMP-3 fields from one file to another file's Packed decimal fields. while moving i got SOC7 abend. so defined WS variable with same length of COMP-3 fields.
moved COMP-3 to WS-XXX
moved WS-XXX to PD
No SOC7 now & values are moved well. but i m unable to see the correct values in my output file getting some values like this 'X'0CF6FC'
Just out of curiosity, why do you think this is a solution to your problem? If you're getting a S0C7, then there is non-numeric data involved somewhere and just moving it to an intermediate field won't generally make it numeric.
Why not code up something like ...
IF ABCD-APPL-AS NUMERIC
MOVE ABCD-APPL-AS TO CDEF-APPL-AS
<handle non-numeric field -- error message or move zero>
