Is it possible to mutiply a comp and comp3 field and vice versa. Will there be any error if we try to multiply?

Why would you think there would be ANY problems in multiplying two numeric fields together? Unless, of course, the result field is too small to contain the result.

Or if the comp-3 field does not contain a valid numeric value. . .

yes, it is possible to multiply a COMP and COMP3 field or vice versa, but the your COMP3 variable should contain the numeric value and the data size for the COMP3 variable should be sufficient to store the result value or above multiplication operation.
