I have a date field defined as S9(8) Comp-3. I need to convert this to a simple 9(8) format. I tried moving S9(8) Comp-3 to a S9(8) variable and then S9(8) to a 9(8). But it is not working as the last byte in 9(8) shows I.
Let me know how can I get the date in 9(8) format.

The only two ways I can guess that the unsigned display-numeric field's last byte had a 'C' zone-nibble, are -
A) The unsigned display-numeric field redefines the signed display-numeric field.
B) The signed display-numeric field is being moved to the unsigned display-numeric field, using reference modification, which treats the move as an internal MVC without regard for the data, in other words, as-is.
Other than these two thoughts, I'm fresh out of ideas....
