I have 1 record in input file with value

-639.54

I need to move this to S9(3)V9(2) COMP3 so that the above field can be converted to comp3 with the correct sign.

Note: The - sign in the input file can be anywhere depending on the actual value of the record i.e it can be -39.54

Can somebody please help me with this. Thanks.

See the NUMVAL intrinsic function in the Language Reference Manual.

Hello,

Just a caution . . .

If the signed value is created by some proven program, NUMVAL can be your friend. If this data is from some kind of data-entry and the values have not been validated, NUMVAL abends if the value is not valid. . .
