If you want the numeric value of the string, 'cause it seems to me that's what you want, you can get it this way :

Code:
COMPUTE WS-STRING-INT-2 =                           
                FUNCTION NUMVAL-C (WS-STRING-INT-1).


but keep in mind that WS-STRING-INT-2 must be numeric. If you want the string value, move the numeric value to the string field again.
