anybody explain about National Datatype in cobol with examples?

Eg:

declared VAR1 PIC X(3) value '001'.

I want to convert above value into S9(5) comp-3,
Example have seen that, doing the above by using Var2 as 9(3) National.
01 Var2-x
03 Var2 PIC 9(3) National.

MOVE ALL X'00' TO Var2-x
MOVE Var1 (01:1) TO Var2 (02:01)
MOVE Var1 (02:1) TO Var2 (04:01)
MOVE Var1 (03:1) TO Var2 (06:01)

Could you plz tell me waht is the value of Var2?

Hello,

Has nothing to do with Natoinal. . . Unless i completely misunderstand what you want to do. If you are sure VAR1 will be numeric, simply move the NUMVAL of VAR1 to a comp-3 variable.

I don't understand why National is mentioned. . .
