Hi,
I have three variable declared as follows

Code:
 
TOTAL        PIC S9(9)  COMP-3.
CNT_ONE      PIC --,---,--9.
CNT_TWO     PIC --,---,---,--9.


and in the program i am calculating TOTAL and at the end moving to CNT_ONE and CNT_TWO

Code:
 
MOVE TOTAL TO CNT_ONE.
MOVE TOTAL TO CNT_TWO.   

if the TOTAL has the value as +010817045
it is moving 817,045 to CNT_ONE
and 10,817,045 to CNT_TWO.

Please let me know why it is truncating first two bytes in case of CNT_ONE even though the value can fit into it.

IIRC, CNT_ONE has the ability to represent seven digits. The first '-' in the edit field is not a numerical digit , but the place holder for the minus sign if needed.

If you want to learn more, I can point you to a Principles of Operation manual and you can look at the EDit instruction.
