Hi,

I need the code to display non displayable data(packed decimal)
in spool.

I just remember that we can use COBOL for this by moving the PD data to another variable and applying some editing formats; not in touch with the exact code, please help!

Thanks.

By spool, do you mean SDSF or IOF? If SDSF, look up the SET HEX ON command. F1 is your friend.

Hello,

If you want to see packed data you might simply DISPLAY the packed fields. . .

Huh? Of course it will give you the exact value. . .

How might something other than the exact value be shown?

Meenakshi,
Don't you have access to a mainframe so you can test the suggestions you've gotten so far?

Suggest you search on keyword "display" on "Mainframe COBOL" part of the forum, you'll get enough working examples around.
